Jon Uriarte, who kindly permitted the use of the above photograph, has painstakingly edited photographs of himself, leaving only his clothes as a witness of ever having existed. Creepy yet captivating gallery of his invisible life.


In the Album series Jon investigates the subject that powered photography the most from its very beginnings, yet was always relegated to the amateur sphere and considered to be purely anecdotal: the family album. Using himself as guinea pig through pictures that make up his family album, the author introduces us to a new visual dimension, that of faceless memory. Through careful editing and working, every day pictures become phantasmagoric images.
