The book, Lockdown Archive is a collection of images all found on the web and reorganized, in order to provide an encyclopedic overview of the Watertown manhunt of April 19, 2013. Unlike traditional archives, Lockdown Archive is organized by a personal, emotional and psychological interpretation of categories: night search, wrong man, FBI team, vehicles, search team green, through the window, house search and bullet holes. Even though this collection of images is encyclopedic, the book doesn’t present or pretend to know all the facts. There are still conflicting reports of the facts of the narrative. The book is a photo sequence with no text. The viewer is asked to create their own story based on the pictures. The last section of the book illustrates a celebration that suggests that the operation was a success, when in fact the reality is more complicated than that.
