Akira Fukahori

Monday, December 18th, 2017

…December 2017… …Nagasaki…

Just received the sad news that atomic bomb survivor Akira Fukahori passed away. He attended the From Above exhibition opening two days prior. Unfortunate and unexpected news. It was an honor to photograph him last year.

..December 2017.. ..New York to Nagasaki..

Preparing prints for the From Above exhibition opening on December 9th at the Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims. There will be a question and answer session about the development of the project beginning at 11am. The exhibition features portraits of atomic bomb survivors from Nagasaki.

I will also be teaching photo workshops on December 9th and 10th concentrating on the use of photography and art to promote peace. Anyone who wants to attend the photo workshops has to sign up in advance to reserve a place. There is no admission fee. Anyone with a camera or cell phone camera can attend.

The project was exhibited in Nagasaki last year but there are plenty of new portraits that will be shown of hibkauhsa (atomic bomb survivors) I photographed during last year’s trip— with Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims in Nagasaki, Nagasaki.

The exhibition is open from December 9th-16th.
A few From Above limited edition books, which features portraits of atomic bomb and firebombing survivors from WWII, will be released for the exhibition. They are only available at or at the venue.
