Hungry and Undervalued was GMD student Charlotte Joseph’s self-initiated project whilst out on the Diploma in Professional Studies. Charlotte is also a music journalist in her spare time and she produced this zine about undiscovered girl bands from her gig visits and interviews.


“I wanted to create something to bring people of colour who enjoy participating in subcultures (that don’t get mainstream press). As a challenge I wanted to see whether I could create something where almost all of the content was mine – including photography. It was about a year of hard graft and after publication I was approached by two stockists – Child’s Draw in Deptford and Standard Bookstore in Osaka. To have my zine sold in Japan is a huge accomplishment to me, especially as I never predicted it.”

The zine is available at Magculture, Charlotte Street News, Child’s Draw, Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum in Amsterdam and Standard Bookstore in Osaka, Japan.
