Publisher Note

Sometimes, as in life, a careful look at what is, literally, behind things is worth it

"Backwards" is a photo series featuring the backs of paintings found for sale in flea markets and secondhand shops at prices from €20 to €150, including the frames.

Unlike the fronts of these pieces, the backs allow us to fully admire “raw” compositions made without any aesthetic or artistic ambitions: are these among the most honest, sincere and spontaneous forms of expression?
