Vanessa Myho's insight:

Mick Broderick Introduction to Hibakusha Cinema

...the Japanese failure to come to terms with Hiroshima is one which is shared by everybody in the world today. No one has come to terms with the bomb -- least of all, perhaps, the people upon whom it was originally inflicted. When the thing itself has become the very epitome of chaos unleashed, it would be expecting too much that an ordered and directed reply could be instantly presented.

Donald Richie, 1961

Ten Japanese Photobooks at Visual Culture Blog by @MarcoBohr

Ten Japanese Photobooks at Visual Culture Blog by @MarcoBohr | hibakusha - visual culture | Scoop.it

As part of the exhibition 10×10 Japanese Photobooks, on show from the 28th to the 30th of September in New York, I have been invited to select ten Japanese photobooks which will be featured in an online space in the run-up to the exhibition. This list was selected in relation to my PhD research on Japanese photography of the 1990s. The so called post-bubble era witnessed the emergence of a number of iconoclastic female photographers whose work has had a major cultural impact in Japan at the time.

Rethinking Visual Media in the Digital Age: An Interview with Fred Ritchin | Open Society Foundations

Rethinking Visual Media in the Digital Age: An Interview with Fred Ritchin | Open Society Foundations | hibakusha - visual culture | Scoop.it
Fred Ritchin discusses his new book, Bending the Frame, about transformation in photojournalism and documentary photography, and how to use visual data in the digital age.
Vanessa Myho's insight:

"Why are there no iconic images from Afghanistan, America’s longest war? What does that say about the change in image culture? What images would be helpful in addressing climate change? Or gun control? Only when we begin to address these questions will the fields of photojournalism and documentary photography move forward."
