Ten photographs, ten real lives, ten fictional stories: Nature's final battle with Man, the dying hopes of a doomed aviator, the first killing of the Cold War, a black sorceress driven to murder in 1950s Ohio, Stanley Kubrick's musings on the set of Dr Strangelove and the ghosts of Native Americans on Alcatraz. These ten photographs - one from each decade of the 20th century -- come from across the globe, from Siberia and Rangoon, Ohio to Shepperton Studios. All belong to the Archive of Modern Conflict. Over the last 20 years the Archive's small collection of amateur war photographs has grown into one of the world's most moving image treasuries. Its shelves now hold some four million photographs, albums and historical objects, most of which were snapped or owned by ordinary men and women living through extraordinary times. MacLean researched each photograph until no more hard facts could be discerned, and then he imagined the lives of its subjects. On the page he told each subject's possible, true story - in his or her own voice.
