ZINE REVIEW #22 « The Flop Box


I Like Disapp-earing
Swampy & Victoria Yee Howe

The overabundance of “My Harrowing and Life Altering Experience Riding the Wild Rails” stories, photographs and documentaries is currently everywhere. Like most risky subcultures, being a first-time rider or seasonal tramp has its adventurous allure. Not to say that you shouldn’t act on curiosity and set out in search of something new, but how ’bout know it before you show it? I know Swampy does. This zine in collaboration with Victoria Yee Howe is proof; a wordless visual diary of thoughtfully composed images. This is landscape solitude. This is train-riding porn. This is a rare printed treasure.
