Over seven decades have passed since a city was destroyed by a nuclear weapon, but the danger never went away. We are now confronted with a world in which nine nations possess roughly 15,000 nuclear weapons. Yet, most people have never seen a nuclear weapon.
“JUST THE TIP” is a photograph series that focuses on the ultimate seduction of the machine. It’s about the immense power of nuclear weapons, their ingenious construct and haunting beauty.
