Yesterday Quarterly No.1 - A Collaboration from Elizabeth de Cleyre & Read Write Books featuring Soren Staff
From Elizabeth de Cleyre:
a new interview series and print quarterly that asks, What did you do yesterday?
In December of 1974, Linda Rosenkrantz asked the photographer Peter Hujar to write down everything he did on a particular day, and the following day she interviewed him. 47 years later, a transcription of the conversation was published as a book by Magic Hour Press. Peter Hujar's Day is a lovely little snapshot in time.
Yesterday Quarterly continues in this spirit, featuring conversations with creatives and entrepreneurs that zero in on a day in their life, capturing the quotidian, the routine, and the unexpected. By asking What did you do yesterday? and sticking around to hear the answers, we're reminded of how our days may differ or overlap, in often mundane and sometimes profound ways. As a print journal, YQ offers a kind of intimacy of holding someone's day in your hands, and invites us to slow down, read, and reconsider how we span our time.
