HIROSHIMA

Ask someone about Hiroshima, and they will tell you one of two things. First, it's a city in Japan. And second, it was where The Bomb was dropped. Google 'Hiroshima' and you would get roughly the same two things. Hiroshima (and Nagasaki) have become the symbol of the atomic age. And if you look, the only images to come out of Hiroshima have been images of the immediate post-bombing landscape, or if it is of a more modern vintage, pictures of the Genbaku Dome (the Atomic Bomb Dome, one of the few remaining structures in the city that survived the blast) or the Peace Memorial Park. Rarely do we see any more.

I lived in Hiroshima for two years from March '06 to March '08 in a little suburb called Funairi-Saiwai-Cho, and these images represent my love affair with the city, and my desire to show Hiroshima as more than a historical footnote. These images represent the places I love, the things piques my curiosity, and everything that makes me miss Hiroshima every day.
