Published to coincide with the Hayward Touring exhibition Collected Shadows, a selection of 200 photographs drawn from the extensive collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict. This special edition publication includes a newly commisioned essay by writer and critic Brian Dillon.
Curated by Timothy Prus from the Archive of Modern Conflict, Collected Shadows presents photography from the 1850s to the present day, both professional and amateur, which juxtapose time periods, geographies and photographic techniques. Cross-cultural and transhistorical, the book combines images of earth, air, fire, water, divinity, astrology, flight and portraiture, creating associations between the elements, the cosmos and humanity.
Artists include: Brassaï, Eugène Atget, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Edward Curtis, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Bert Hardy, Bertha Jaques, Frances Benjamin Johnstone, Marketa Luskacova, Étienne-Jules Marey, Jaroslav Rössler, Charles Henry Turner, and Dorothy Wilding among others.
