Yuck ‘n Yum are delighted to announce that our new cover artist for 2012 is Helen Flanagan.
Helen is a photographer based in Birmingham, returning there after graduating from Falmouth University of Arts in 2010. Her photography captures human fragility with a delicacy in framing and the slightest of touch. She has exhibited across the UK and has been featured in multiple photographic publications including Dazed and Confused magazine. She is also cofounder of Books & Others, a project aimed at promoting photographic works, with visual artist Alex Bailey.
We at Yuck ‘n Yum are very excited to have Helen as our first photographic cover artist and are curious to see what direction Helen takes YNY in 2012. Helen has been featured twice in Yuck ‘n Yum in our summer and winter editions of 2011. You can view these works amongst others by heading to our zine archive.
You can read a nice interview about Helen’s project ‘No Strings Attached’ courtesy of It’s Nice That magazine here and view her photography and other projects at

We would also like to say a big thank you to Ross Hamilton Frew who is handing the baton over to Helen. Ross produced four stunning covers for us last year and we wish him all the best for the future.
The deadline for the Spring 2012 issue is the 23rd of February.
