I had an opportunity to photograph ‘The Peace Concert 2012’ in Melbourne, organised by Japanese For Peace. (link)  Ms. Junko Morimoto was one of the artists who performed at the event. She is a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. She migrated to Australia from Japan in 1982. Her picture-books are widely read by school children throughout the world and include the autobiographical My Hiroshima.

ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) published the brochure below, ‘Black Mist’. It explains the impact of nuclear weapons on Australia and also introduces people whose lives have been affected by nuclear weapons.

I was very honored to have my photo of Ms. Junko Morimoto published in this brochure.
