2018 Format: 14,8x21cm Single print Recylced paper. The Vanishings is a set of fifteen squared images on transparent rhodoid paper placed randomly in a book filled with white pages. They were chosen for their historical content as a reflection of the confused use of historical archives on the internet and storage platforms. The set exposes different ways for images to appear and disappear when faced to a completely different exposure. Out of their original context, the figures are no longer seen as historical but as characters surrounded by a neutral background.
