Robert Del Tredici - At Work in the Fields of the Bomb

100. Hiroshima , August 6, 1945

Three weeks after the Trinity blast, the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima at 8:15 A.M. Only five photographs were taken form within the city on this day. The photographer was Yoshito Matsushige.

"Before I became a professional cameraman I had been just an ordinary person. So when I was faced with a terrible scene like this, I found it difficult to push the shutter. I was standing on the Miyuki-bashi Bridge for about 20 minutes before I could do it. Finally I thought, I am a professional cameraman so I have to."
