UNABASHED (Volume 3)

Haley Eyre


The creation of an UNABASHED volume is unstructured and intuitive. The magazine is a curation of subjects I am drawn to, which means each edition is unique. I may interview people I admire, create photographs or collages, collect stories, poems or anything else that intrigues me and that I expect would also intrigue viewers.

I started UNABASHED Magazine because I saw a lack of representation and lightheartedness in the magazines I was reading, and I wanted to create something to fill that gap. Quickly, the magazine transformed into something looser that I use to showcase all the wonderful people and ideas I have come across while creating the volume.

I like to approach creating a volume in three steps. Step 1 Research: looking for new people and ideas that interest me. Step 2 Creation: delving deeper into those topics and creating content about them. Step 3 Design: creating the visuals and layout of the magazine.

Observing the creation of UNABASHED will essentially be watching me explore and learn from the world around me, ultimately sharing the experience with others.
