Daylight is pleased to announce the publication of elin o'Hara slavick's After Hiroshima

Text by Mizuno Jun'ichi

After Hiroshima is Slavick's attempt to visually, poetically, and historically address the magnitude of what disappeared and what remains as a result of the dropping of the A-bomb. These are images of loss and survival, fragments and lives, architecture and skin, surfaces and invisible things - like radiation. Slavick's quiet and sensitive photographs are in sharp contrast to the painful, graphic images associated with the aftermath of Hiroshima. In this essay, James Elkins describes After Hiroshima as a "sharp, sad and beautiful project." The book combines cyanotypes thatevoke the early days of photography, rubbings, and traditional photography made by Slavick over the course of visits to Hiroshima with her family from 2008 through 2011.

Join us at the following signings and exhibition openings:
