Destruction


The humble beginnings of the nuclear arsenal used around 1945 were not quite so humble. The Trinity Atomic Bomb pictured above was the first of the USA's repertoire of mass destruction and concentrates a mass of nuclear science, functional design and a will to destroy.

Martin Miller, a photographer who tends to disseminate the grit of mankind, created a visual perspective of the atomic bomb's history with a series called the "Manhattan Project". Reduced to objects devoid of humans, humanity seems to be sucked out of these images yet the subject itself has everything to do with humanity. It is a bare bones view of these weapons of mass destruction. However you see it, whether as an intriguing design or an alienesque calamity that a bunch of humans dreamt up, it is a very relevant topic of today and these images offer an objective look at what has led up to it.
