    About

    On Aug. 6, 1945, the US dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. A second bomb was dropped three days later just north of Nagasaki. Over 50 Japanese photographers documented the immediate aftermath, a visual record of nuclear destruction and the mass suffering that ensued. The Anti-Nuclear Photographers’ Movement of Japan collected the images, which now comprise the center’s Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Photographs Archive. "Flash of Light, Wall of Fire" is an exhibit based on these photos.
