Publisher's Description
Born in Japan in 1947, Ishiuchi Miyako hadn’t visited Hiroshima until 2007, when she accepted a commission from Yamamoto Junji, the editor of Shuiesha publishing company, to photograph artifacts from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum for a monograph. Published in 2008, Hiroshima presents 61 color photographs created by placing the artifacts – clothing and personal effects that were deposited in the archive by members of the victims’ families – on a light box, illuminating the weave of the garments and enhancing the objects in an aura of light. The small book fits comfortably into the palm of your hand and has the seductive look of a promotional brochure printed by a fashion house, disguising the fact it presents remains of the dead.

This book is a new Hiroshima book of her, 'From Hiroshima.' She added photos which have taken since 2008 to the last one, and the book became much bigger than 2008 edition. Completely beautiful and astonishing book ever of Hasselblad Award winning photographer.
