$16.00
Ten real lives, ten photographs, ten time travels: the first Cold War assassination, the dying hopes of a doomed aviator, the ghosts of Native America on Alcatraz, Chairman Mao's shyest lover. A photograph or group of photographs comes from each decade of the 20th century. They all belong to the Modern Conflict Archive. Over the past 25 years, the Archive's small collection of amateur photographs has grown to become one of the world's most moving image treasures, and its shelves now hold images of some four million lives lost. In the 20th century, amateur photography took history and collective memory out of the hands of historians and gave it to individuals. In Pictures of You, bestselling author Rory MacLean recounts a journey through the world and into the lives of ordinary men and women who lived through extraordinary times. Travel along the shelves of the Archive, venturing from Siberia to Rangoon, China to Shepperton Studios, hearing forgotten voices reflected from the depths of time, imagining lives that mirror ours, and keeping the stories behind these images of you. . A delicately beautiful book, haunting in its effect. Magnificent Alexander McCall Smith. Wonderful! A unique virtuous exercise in empathy, storytelling, and imagination, with learning and hints of mysticism thrown in. Jan Morris. Rory MacLean is the author of more than a dozen books, including the British top ten Stalins Nose and Under the Dragon.
