X-rays from the I&R Icono Studio (2011–2016)

These pictures were selected from the archive of celluloid X-rays of the I&R Icono Restoration Studio, the plates were cropped and edited and the resulting project not only subverts the images original intention but also shed light on these original photographic “portraits,” the majority of which date back to the XVI and XVII centuries. At that time most of the old masters represented here received their commissions from the monarchy or the church, the former for the purpose of consolidating it’s power and the latter, in the case of the great religious representations to be shown in churches to an illiterate public.
