Uncovered is comprised of ten chapters, each presenting at least ten full-page reproductions by a different photographer. Each chapter begins with a brief text that tells the fascinating stories of each photographer's work and how it has been uncovered. Many photographers worked undercover, carrying on entirely different careers in the daytime and then taking their covert pictures on the sidelines, with studios hidden away in basements and attics. Many used aliases to conceal their identities. Some of their archives were hidden away for decades in closed archives under lock and key. Other caches of photos were barely saved from the incinerator only by the intrepid research of passionate collectors.
