In this series, Melanie Willhide digitally collages the front and reverse sides of photographs to reveal both simultaneously. The resulting ghostly images suggest clandestine memories long secreted away.

Her work is included in the collections of Yale University, and the Paul and Barbara Kaben collection, among others.
