Illustrated People is the translation into book form of a performance by Thomas Mailaender. He applied to the skin of models 23 original negatives selected from the Archive of Modern Conflicts collection before projecting a powerful UV lamp over them, thus revealing a fleeting image on the skins surface. Maileander then photographed each of his models before the sun made the image disappear. The book comprises the resulting shots combined with a series of photographic documents found in AMCs collection.
