INÈS DI FOLCO & ELENA VALTCHEVA

Diario de Cuba is the name of a daily newspaper from Santiago de Cuba issued before the Revolution. Exploring the photographic archives of this journal we found mysterious and lonely pictures, and many strange, doctored or damaged photographs. The authors of the selected images, as well as the date and place they were made are unknown. We imagined dialogues between different cultures and generations. The missing stories behind these photographs became material for interpretation. The story had to be understood or invented, created and lived.
