Today is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima so it seems a good chance to show this beautiful and moving book that I was introduced to recently. Japanese photographer Ishiuchi Miyako was asked to photograph clothing and other items in the collection of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The garments have been photographed back lit on a light box which adds to their poignancy and sense of fragility. There is a small amount of text which is in both Japanese and English.


I bought my copy from Amazon Japan but it might also be available else where. There is a DVD also.
