Huge loss for photography today with the death of Shomei Tomatsu. His quiet, personal approach to national devastation inspired an entire generation of photographers, filmmakers, and writers.

All photos by Shomei Tomatsu:

House 9, Amakusa Shimoshima Island, Kumamoto Prefecture, 1959

From: The Skin of the Nation

Time Stopped at 11:02, 1945, Nagasaki,” 1961, and “Bottle Melted and Deformed by Atomic Bomb Heat, Radiation, and Fire, Nagasaki,” 1961

A huge loss. Magnificent artist.
