Seven years ago, photographer Thomas Allen took one of his uncle’s old pulp paperbacks, with two men in a fistfight on the cover. ”I started cutting it and the guys flew off the page,” says Allen, 44. ”I realized by cutting and revealing only parts of them, I can actually alter what’s going on in the painting.” Uncovered (Aperture, $24.95) collects 28 of Allen’s bookish photos, all shot without high-tech manipulation.
