X-Ray Japan 1945

DANIEL BLAU is pleased to present an exhibition of documenting photographs capturing the final bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The photographs represent the work of both American and Japanese artists and documentarians, including among others Hiromichi Matsuda, Torahiko Ogawa, Yoshito Matsushige, Yōsuke Yamahata, and photographers from the U.S. Army Air Force.
The exhibition is accompanied by a publication with 33 photographs, printed as negatives, leading viewers along a path of more complex and contemplative observation, one that goes far beyond the matter of simply illustrating and reassessing historical events.
