R/NDOM is a photo zine project conceived by visual artist Matt Plezier. Every issue has a different theme based on Plezier’s own work or curated by another visual artist that has been invited by the zine. Ranging from the humorous to the engaged, a common theme that runs throughout the project is the questioning of how to document our constantly changing environment.
Salvo publishes at least two periodicals a year. Depending on its theme, each edition varies in size and print run, and contains photographs inspired by a chosen theme. Salvo’s participants are Anne Geene, Arjan de Nooy, Sander Uitdehaag and Vincent van Baar.
