Tomatsu is a post World War II era Japanese photographer that concentrates in black and white photography that documents the transformation of a society that was bombed by a nuclear weapon. His impactful and instantly memorable images contain evocative social, economic, and physical ideas concerning the implications of an unnatural event imposed on a culture (it is believed that 98% of the bombed victims were civilians). His work serves not only as a reminder of the events cruelty, but more importantly, powerfully imposes the pain, raw emotion and transfiguration of his people onto the psyche of the viewer.
