Zine Review: Rise Fall Repeat #2

Rise Fall Repeat #2

Four things really caught my attention in Rise Fall Repeat. The first is the brilliant graphic attention to detail and interplay between the photography and cut n paste text. The second is a piece titled “Waking Life” that is poetry in prose, revealing simple yet profound thoughts. The third is a photograph of sidewalk graffiti that poses the question “Instead of picking your poison, why don’t you choose a cure?” And the fourth is a heartfelt essay that calls into question rape culture and how such violence is still tolerated in our society. Rise Fall Repeat #2 embodies all of the qualities of an exceptional zine, a writer’s voice and vision liberated in print.
