Famed Photographer, Who Took Long-Suppressed Pictures in Hiroshima, Dies at 94 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Wayne Miller was among the first group of Americans to arrive in Hiroshima about a month after the bombing, in early September, 1945. He was a Navy man attached to the official wartime photography unit, directed by Edward Steichen (and took some memorable battlefield shots earlier). He made his way to the atomic city by train—see his oral history here—and snapped a few pictures in a handful of locations, then left. This was just days, maybe hours, afrer Wilfred Burchett, the Australian, became the first outside journalist to get to Hiroshima and write his fabled “warning to the world.”
