Current Resident

Last time we posted about Where You From, a zine which looked at the love/hate relationships people experience with their hometowns. This time, we’re focusing on the bricks and mortar. Current Resident is an ongoing project in which Krissy collects vintage photographs of houses, sensing the stories behind them and writing short monologues based on the people she imagines to have lived there. In the third issue [pictured], she includes nine different houses, inhabiting a unique narrative voice for each one. The result is an imaginative collection of short stories — plus, each zine comes with a copy of an old house photograph attached to the cover, which is a nice touch.
