Yo-NEWYORK!, combining visual art and literature in an open submission zine, invites New York artists to apply online for their next issue. Brooklyn-based photographer Charlie Rubin (who is also a regular photographer for The Creators Project) recently started a Kickstarter page to help crowd source the printing and distribution costs of their third issue.

Rubin describes Yo-NEWYORK! as a time capsule “since the work is being made right now in New York, it should serve as a representation of what’s on people’s mind, or what the city looks like in 2016. I imagine looking at one of these in 10 years would serve as a peek into the climate of the day.”

The project brings together creative minds working through a variety of mediums. Each contributor gets a page to decorate as they choose. The editors then stack the pages on top of each other and fold them down the middle like a book. This process splits each contributor’s page in two and automatically pairs each half with another artist, creating new juxtapositions and exchanges. The project’s Kickstarter page says, “The result is a surreal flow, featuring multiple views of the city at this moment in time.”
