The first photos of the Acoberto project.Photography and concept by Vanessa Neves
The begining...
In 2009 I asked model and friend Silvia Diamantino to get under a white sheet in random places around Portugal, most of the places were abandoned structures, factories and hotels, but also working museums and college departments.
The only real goal at this stage was to get enigmatic  images of a body you can not identified because it's hidden under a white sheet in some bizarre and unrelated locations.
The project was kept from public eyes until I was able to make new photos where I could show a relation between the hiding body and the places it was put on.

I would like to say thank you to Silvia, she was amazing letting me use her for this idea,I don't know anyone else that would had laid in the middle of a gigantic empty pool filled with garbage and broken glass all over.
