pretty nostalgia childhood


What washes over us?

Throughout our childhood, there are small moments that are fleeting—constantly washing over us. Think about a memory like the life cycle of a wave. The memory heightens as it approaches the shore. Its dissipation as it crashes onto the water surface. Then, the shoreline recedes. In this Issue, we want you to explore your childhood memories in the form of a wave. The moment, the aftermath, the reflection.
