elin o'Hara slavick: After Hiroshima

This week the world struggles with news that chemical weapons may have been used upon civilians, including children, in Syria. Coincidentally, this month marks the sixty-eighth anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, by the United States. So this weekend we are featuring an image from After Hiroshima, elin o'Hara slavick's somber yet beautiful new monograph from Daylight Books, which was reviewed this week in both The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times. Noam Chomsky writes, "The atomic bombing of defenseless Hiroshima was not only a human calamity of immense proportions, but also a warning to all of the fragility of human survival, as the endless human quest to achieve limitless capacity for destruction reached the point where the suicide of the species may not be far off. This remarkable photographic essay brings to us with harrowing clarity the state to which we have descended – and what may lie ahead if we cannot cure ourselves of the pathology that has brought us this far."
