Physical Beings in a Physical World
11 August 2011
In 2003, on a day off from his nine-to-five as a dispensing optician, Olu Michael Odukoya started a magazine that is as bold, big, and beautiful as the mountain it is named after: Kilimanjaro. Ignoring all the conventional advice about how to make a print magazine, Olu simply followed his own vision. Published bi-annually, he releases his editorial experiments and his view on visual culture on loose poster-sized sheets that are folded and kept in a box. Avant-garde thinking is fundamental to his success. For The Avant/Garde Diaries, Olu introduced us to Artwords bookshop owner Ben Hillwood-Harris.
