Christopher Kane's atom bombs

I had posted before about Kane's collection that features atom bombs, mentioning that I thought it was interesting and beautiful. Unbeknownst to me and several people, some of the images he used (actually, it may be just one, but that's not the point) is an actual photo of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Check out Phosphene's blog for more discussion of this. As I said in the comments there, I can no longer say that I like these pieces, and I'm sorry if I ruined some art for you but... I can't really stomach looking at them anymore, and I obviously felt moved enough to blog about it.

Moving on to happier subjects...
