With a certain youthful optimism, we named the first issue of the PhotoStatic series “Some Possibilities” and, with the help of some friends, set out to present some of the possibilities of the medium of photocopy, which we were then only beginning to explore. With this is mind, the reader/viewer might better appreciate the up and down quality and interest of these pieces as simply experiments and enthusiastic attempts to manipulate a new (to us) visual language. (The same can be said for the next several issues as well, as it is evident that we were able to find our editorial footing only very gradually, through much trial, error and criticism, both internal and external.)
