Bonus Material: Eleanor Leonne Bennett

Following each volume, Stoked offers its contributors a chance to provide us with some bonus material that further showcases their talent and spirit. Today’s bonus material comes from Eleanor Leonne Bennett, as she tells us a little about what she’s stoked about this holiday season and gives us some more of her rad photographs. 


 

I am stoked about the New Year, the end of 2011 and Christmas. I am also stoked about the windy/snowy dramatic weather we are currently having in the UK. It would be lovely to have a white Christmas; last year on Boxing Day, I took two snowy images that won first place in two competitions (overall Cheshire East Under 18s and Curiosities Trees Photography competition). I am also really excited about Christmas presents. One of the things I want most is an iPod since my last one was misplaced. I am a big fan of good music, very keen on stuff from the 50s, 60s, 80s and 90s. I love listening to britpop and bands like Gorillaz, Broken Bells and Gnarles Barkley. I get very excited about recent releases too, like Lykke Li, Rizzle Kicks and Kinshasa One Two. Hope you enjoy some of my images.

What Are You Stoked About?

A review of Adam Robison and Other Poems by Adam Robinson (Reviewed by Ryan Rader)

An Interview with Nate Pritts (Interviewed by Joshua Helms)

————————————————————————————

From his ongoing erasure project of The 9/11 Commission Report, Travis Macdonald brings us fourteen pages of erasure, forming a poem that stretches in and out of its original to become something as beautiful as it is mysterious. Where the report is the body representing this event, this erasure is the DNA strand, as Macdonald has illuminated the vital pieces that make it evermore strange and exhilarating and impactful.

Handmade Classified Document, 14 pages with Cover insert.

Release Date: 1/1/12 (Preorders will ship mid-December)
