“Unpacking” summarizes, on an experimental basis, the process of meaning of photographic images taken over more than twenty years, from the author’s archive.

The work “Bilder Atlas” of Aby Warburg (1866-1929) and two key ideas: the “law-of-good-neighborly” that would create “non-hierarchical” relations between images, and also a “iconology of the interval” concept to define the significance relationships between images and their relational tensions, are taken as cultural reference and stylistic matrix.

This book can be an “atlas-of-image” which condenses in power, the traffic between the unique and the universal, the private and the public, image and language, in a retrospective and self-reflection process in order to understand the formal and conceptual universe of the author’s file.
