Uncover is a series made using international magazines (Life Magazine, II Borghese, Historia...) dating from the 1950s to the 1970s.


Cuts are made in the pages so that images 'from the inside', illustrating the articles in the magazine, appear on the cover. On this new cover, featuring an image within an image, the elements form a coherent, legible whole.


Like an archaeological dig progressing towards deeper strata, this desconstruction/construction exhumes buried silhouettes and gives rise to a hybrid image. One image does not efface another. To exhume them is to bring them out of their sepulchre, but also to rescue them from obscurity.


Uncover shows the trace of events that never occurred, of a moment that never existed.
