“Growing up in The Netherlands with punkrock kids and bands, Jolijn Snijders lived & breathed rock and roll for nearly a decade. At gigs she got handed down countless cut & paste fanzine, flyers and homemade coversleeves. “Everything is so independent and DIY, you get inspired by everyone and everything around you”. Jolijn wanted to create a similar ‘homemade’ zine, one where upcoming talent and established artists meet, mixing art, photography & fashion. Keen on discovering cool, mad artists, spotting new talent became her mission and she decided to launch ILOVEFAKE magazine. Jolijn also takes photos for a living, documenting young kids de la mode, but in a true sense, giving her subjects a dark, romantic edge. Jolijn’s clients have included Avant Garde, Rodeo Magazine, Kinki Magazine, Karl Lagerfeld, Blend, NEO2, Celeste Magazine, Elle Girl, Mirage Magazine, OZON, INDIE Magazine etc. But don’t let all these big names phase you. This prodigy is very down to earth, and enjoys her french films".
