Remember When...

Remember When... is a series of zines created with the intention of finding humor in experiences that have caused feelings of distress during five people’s formative years. For many, middle school is a period of embarrassment, confusion, and loneliness. Looking back, adults find that their middle school experience was a critical component of their social development. Sharing stories that cause unpleasant feelings is often cathartic in the sense that others tend to empathize with them. This project centers around these types of stories, which were anonymously submitted to me from a variety of age groups.
