Collected Shadows is an exhibition of 200 photographs drawn from the extensive collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict (AMC). The AMC is an organisation that was first established 25 years ago as a repository for vernacular photography and ephemera relating to the First and Second World Wars. Today it holds a growing collection of over 8 million photographs that encompasses a plethora of subject matter – not solely defined by war and conflict – collected from diverse sources all over the world.

Curated by AMC Director, Timothy Prus, Collected Shadows offers a glimpse into these extraordinary holdings. This eclectic display includes scientific, astronomical and botanical studies, studio sittings, portraits and private snapshots, press photographs, film stills and aerial photographs from several wars.
