Fresh News Over Old Front Cover is a photographic Serie created during pandemic period of COVID-19 in 2020.
9 digital photos were taken. 9 vintage photo prints overlap contemporary newspaper’s covers. This overlap, reframes each cover photo, with analog prints that shows the slavery period in Brazil. Each digital picture was taken by the artist. Someone’s hand, wearing a black fabric glove, held a printed picture in front of a LCD monitor screen, showing internet news sites.
All those news selected, have the same theme: “African descendants suffering more than white people during COVID-19 pandemic”, however, none of those publishers have connected those facts to the slavery period, nor published a single photo of slaves.
