Exhibition of photographs from "American Ground Zero"

 

My photographs from "American Ground Zero: The Secret Nuclear War" were part of an exhibition of the work of the Atomic Photographers Guild at the conference in Basel, Switzerland, of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, August 28-29, 2010.

A larger selection of these photos will be shown at The Cooper Union in New York City, September 30, 2010, on the occasion of the Nuclear Free Future Awards, as well as photographs of other members of the Atomic Photographers Guild.

Winter approaching, the season of best (interior) work.

While fame impedes and constricts, obscurity wraps about a [wo]man like a mist; obscurity is dark, ample, and free; obscurity lets the mind take its way unimpeded. Over the obscured [wo]man is poured the merciful suffusion of darkness. None knows where s/he goes or comes. S/he may seek after the truth and speak it; s/he alone is free; s/he alone is truthful, s/he alone is at peace. -Virginia Woolf (text feminized)

It is GOOD to be alone.
