All I Remember. Elisabetta Benassi.

Conceived as an artist’s book as well as a work of art, All I remember, is a collection of 477
backs of photos retrieved from the archives of the most important daily newspapers in the
world, collected and photographed by the artist over the last three years. Elisabetta Benassi
has selected the most significant photos of the 20th century in a backwards route through
personal and collective memories. Each page of the book corresponds to a single photo back
characterized by a data sheet with the dates, the photographers’ names and an objective
description of that which is represented in the image, as is usually done in image filing
systems. The result is an original history of our past, made of written images, of memorable
moments of the history of the 20th century.
