ヒロシマ • 広 島 • hirou-ʃimə. A collection of rough, gritty and haunting black and white photographs. Wonderfully sequenced.

Photographs are taken by the All Japan students photographers association (Zen-Nihon Gakusei Shashin renmei).

This powerfully disturbing book is definitely one of the most energetic photography books I have ever come across.

Take a look at the pictures below to see for yourself.
