05 Dec Scene Zine – Matt Perrin

“After a handful of trips across Canada and the United States shooting photos with my Pentax K-1000 and riding my BMX I it was time to make something. I usually take photos of anything mildly interesting or BMX related simply for the sake of just doing something I love. I knew in the back of my mind the right day would finally come for all of these rolls of film to be put to good use. With some inspiration, spare time and couple gallons of coffee, Scene Zine is here.

Scene Zine is a free zine packed with a collection of photos and interviews documenting street riding and the lifestyle BMX riders around the country live. There are a small few things in life that can compare to riding street in a foregin city and getting swept away by where it takes you. Scene zine documents this by an array of black and white photography and interviews with riders I met in these circumstances on specific subjects to which I find to be enlightening. Volume 1 documents a six day road trip to Minneapolis with the Royal Sports Bike Shop crew, riding and finding my way around Chicago with my pal Ian Peters, and an interview on the topic of camping with Vancouver’s green giant, Amos Franke and Edmonton’s favourite panda, Duke Thomson. Among these 40 pages are the unseen and in-between  documenting everything else I shot which I thought was worthy enough to make it in.
If you would like to get your hands on a physical copy of Scene Zine you can visit Royal Sports in Winnipeg, 3Ride in Vancouver, Thunder Bay or Toronto, Atlantis Vancouver or 514 BMX in Montreal in the next few days. You can also purchase a copy of Volume 1 with a package deal that includes some buttons, stickers and a 11” x 17” poster for only $10. Very Limited supply so get em now before they’re gone! “Matt Perrin

04 May Scene Zine by Matt Perrin

Matt Perrin recently published his first issue of Scene Zine, a zine dedicated to the BMX scene in and around Winnipeg, MB. It’s a great 32 page, black and white publication with a mix of interviews and photos that gives some insight in to what makes up their community. The Manitoba scene always appears to be a tight knit group, and this zine is evidence of that. Matt covers not only riders living in the core of Winnipeg, but also the surrounding smaller towns such as Morden, Brandon, Komenda, and more. You can find photos and interviews with Ian Peters, Shawn Hildebrandt, Colin Thiessen, Shawn Franz, and the crew behind Da Peg Show. People that know me know that I believe that printed matter matters, and it’s great to see people continue to put time and energy towards making tangible projects like this to share with their friends.

Matt hooked us up with a bunch of copies so we’re going to pass them on to you. The first five people to email us at northernembassy@gmail.com with their FULL mailing address will get a copy. This is only open to residents of Canada, and one copy per person. Check out some more photos of the zine’s contents below, and try to be one of the first five people to send us an email!
