Mayor Taue of Nagasaki

..May 2013.. ..New York to Nagasaki..

Last week I was given the opportunity to present one the few remaining copies of From Above to Mayor Taue of Nagasaki.

Mayor Taue was a former photography student of Takahara-san, a good friend and hibakusha who wrote the introduction in From Above.

I feel honored that Mayor Taue received the book and that the faces and stories of the atomic bomb survivors and fire bombing survivors in the book will continue to have a voice.

A couple remaining copies of From Above are for sale exclusively at this link.
