I thought of this zine as a puzzle- it's a collection headshot screen caps, none of whom/which were familiar to me, begging for a connection element. Are they all white people of a certain caliber? From the author's home town perhaps, or actors who have come out as queer? Actors who resemble the authors actual family? From the explaination of the pubisher, it's just a scrapbook of Masetto's favorites? Like many things, I always wish obsessional projects pushed their obsessions to the limit. This is a zine of 12 actors, that, while artistically presented, struggles to create a context. -EF
