Popular images during the civil war are presented without its constitutive element, ceasing to be iconic and remaining as common landscapes and being look away from all media at this moment.

They are remote places, unprotected and outside the eyes of most people, everyday story just for their habitants, but still, with a load and intense story, and in some cases the stories are part of the present, urgent and yet invisible.

The contradiction between the remote and peaceful landscape with the new reflecting image (when the viewer approches to the work) will be evident, as it is when you get to see the missing element of the iconic photo, which will make the viewer complete the mental image and re- member the time, place and particular history, thus demonstrating that even what we don’t remember, is never forgotten, everything remains.
