Gonichi Kimura

Gonichi Kimura, a member of the Army Photographers’ Team, photographed the mushroom cloud over Hiroshima about 15 minutes after the bombing, approximately. 4,000m from the hypocenter at the grounds of the Army Marine Training Division. Several of his photographs of Hibakusha literally a “person affected by a bomb”, have become iconic representations of the horrors of atomic warfare.
