Function Magazine

Hate words? This zine is for you. All photos. All of it. Beautiful photos that capture things even words cannot. In featuring the works of over 20 emerging Canadian photographers based in Toronto, this 22-page photocopied zine highlights the grad work of the cats from Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts. Although Halloween is the theme for this issue, it is also underhandedly Fun. There’s no doubt there’s talent in these pages: one photo has a French maid wearing a Lolita-inspired innocence while balancing on her sexy tiptoes with a bloody knife and dead man at her feet, which is very Hitchcock meets Clue. In another, a delicious teenager sits erect atop of a dirt hill amidst a suburban construction zone. Find this penniless zine at Namelings Photo Cafe at 147 Church St. where these kids text each other from across the white room. The only thing that suffers in Function is the paper quality, as these photos deserve colour. Maybe Function should be selling more beer at their launch parties to fundraise? (Nadja Sayej)
