Penelope Umbrico’s project Solar Eclipses is made up of a collection of collages created using images of solar eclipses found in the New York Public Library Picture Collection.
Through an extensive manual research and an approach to the project that mediates on the duality between physical experience and the digitising of images printed on paper, Umbrico bring together a new lecture of those found photos in an abstract black and white series. The softcover book is beautifully designed by RVB, with a transparent slipcase and a separate transparent c-print.
