Illustrated People is the manifestation in book form of a performance by Thomas Mailaender, in which he applied original negatives selected from the Archive of Modern Conflict's collection to the skin of models and projected a powerful UV lamp over them, thus revealing a fleeting image on the skin’s surface. Mailaender then photographed each of his models before exposure to daylight caused the images to disappear. The book comprises the resulting shots interpersed with a series of archive images from the AMC collection.
