AMCCPublished to coincide with the Archive of modern Conflict’s contribution to the exhibition Conflict, Time, Photography at Tate Modern, London, A Guide for the Protection of the Public in Peacetime presents the landscapes of war as viewed by those co-opted, blighted, disrupted, demented, excited, uplifted, corrupted, dumbfounded and unbalanced by the process. It explores the psyche of conflict – from the primal tribalism of paint and feathers through the ideal of the chivalrous warrior to the scientific clinicality of triggers and switches. Photographers include household names as well as many of the unremembered people whose captured moments carry us into a zone of discord.
