Notes on Design
Autumn de Wilde

p class="noMargin">I take my camera out to load it moments before I shoot. “Fuck, what the hell is this roll of film from?”


I open a drawer. A lonely roll of film stares up at me. “Fuck, what the hell is this roll of film from?”


I reach in my purse, a pocket, a cupboard. “Fuck, what the hell is this roll of film from?”


Mystery rolls.


When Zoetrope: All-Story asked me to design this edition, I wanted to draw from my archive. After twenty-five or so years as a photographer, I’ve become a librarian of captured souls, friends and lovers, liars and heroes, makers and takers. It’s an endless emotional maze. When I hunt through the archive’s chaos of visual connections and collections, I feel like a survivor. It’s a profound honor and responsibility to care for this ever-expanding graveyard of memory . . .
