Photos in the news: new photos of Hiroshima unearthed

Link to Huffington Post.

Sean Malloy, a professor at the University of California Merced, “recently unearthed 10 previously-unpublished photographs illustrating the aftermath on the Hiroshima bombing.”

These photographs, taken by an unknown Japanese photographer, were found in 1945 among rolls of undeveloped film in a cave outside Hiroshima by U.S. serviceman Robert L. Capp, who was attached to the occupation forces. Unlike most photos of the Hiroshima bombing, these dramatically convey the human as well as material destruction unleashed by the atomic bomb.

Below, you’ll find one of the photos from this collection. See the rest here. Warning: some of the images are graphic and will be difficult for some readers to view. (Via Danger Room)
