Since 2019, Analog Cookbook has featured artists, filmmakers, and photographers working with analog media from all over the world. Deeply inspired by Helen Hill’s Recipes for Disaster, this publication seeks to make the knowledge of working with film more accessible to anyone and everyone who wishes to experiment with celluloid and analog processes in the digital age.

It is both a space to share knowledge and celebrate works on non-digital media through camera guides, developing recipes, artist profiles, Q&As and essays.

Analog Cookbook showcases:

  • Films made on film
  • Photography shot on film
  • Darkroom recipes. For example: mordançage, phytograms, films processed with plants, beer, etc.
  • Artwork about analog filmmaking, or filmmakers who inspire you. For example: issue 1 featured a collage about Carolee Schneemmann.
  • Essays about analog films 
  • Camera guides 

BIPOC, Womxn, LGBTQIA+, those with a disability, and artists from underrepresented communities encouraged to apply.

About the Application:

All submissions will require an Artist bio and a Statement of Diversity and Inclusion. 

Artist Bios should be 100-150 Words. Your artist bio will be what readers see in the book. Make sure you write in the third person for a public audience. An example of an Artist bio can be seen here.

Analog Cookbook is committed to promoting accessibility and inclusivity in front of and behind the camera. We want to see these values reflected in works featured in the zine and ask that submitters include information on how they have promoted inclusivity in their art practice. For examples, check out Seed&Spark’s 8 Great Inclusion Statements.

At this time, we can only accept one film or photo series per artist, but encourage submitting written pieces to go with visual works.

For all questions please email

Email submissions will not be accepted.
