The Light at the End of History: Reacting to Nuclear Impact presents photo- graphs from artist Abbey Hepner’s decade-long examination of nuclear energy, the atomic bomb, and radioactive waste. By capturing distinct marks in time, Hepner makes visible the ongoing, often invisible, relationships with nuclear technologies.
