Lost Images of the Hiroshima Atom Bomb


Lost Images of the First Atomic Bombing --

After the United States detonated the atomic bomb "Little Boy" over the Japanese city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, American photographers surveyed the unimaginable destruction the blast had wrought. Their photos of the desolated cityscape remained classified for decades, but with this year's exhibit at the International Center of Photography  in New York City, they are now accessible to the general public for the first time. The images in the slides that follow provide an unfiltered look into nuclear warfare's destructive power.
