Podophobia is a personal zine about my own experiences with foot phobia. People who suffer from podophobia experience anxiety about feet, and the phobia can become quite irrational. Using this research as the basis, the visual language is inconsistent, absurd, incoherent and illogical.
I used this zine to do personal research and face my podophobia. I wanted people to understand how it is to have a phobia, because often people thinks I exaggerate and think it is funny to “test” me to see my reaction. I decided to challenge myself with a technique called “Systematic Densitisation”, to find out just how deep my phobia is.
