Chipped Lenses Retrospective Photo Gallery

Highlights from the found photo ‘zine, Chipped Lenses, curated by Alice-Eve Laverne from 1993-1996. In the heady peak of Austin’s ‘zine scene, the quarterly Chipped Lenses had a staggering circulation of 27, and was found in all of Austin’s independent coffee shops within convenient walking distance of Laverne’s office and print studio in Hyde Park. The Chipped Lenses collection was bequeathed to the Museum after Laverne’s move into a smaller apartment, and is occasionally expanded by readers rediscovering the ‘zine even after 10 years.
