After seventy-three years from the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 25 photographs of atomic experiments, that the American and French army carried out from 1946 to 1970 in remote places in the Pacific or in the desert, are exhibited in London as a commemoration. These photographs of death and transfiguration are the documentation of the evil in an aesthetic testimony. Beyond the atrocious gesture, forgotten the dreadful reality, these works remain frightful yet beautiful to observe. Enormous clouds in a shape of indented columns, in the immense temple of the sky; white bunch of ionise gas; sculptures of irradiate light; enormous shock waves pressed in milky clouds; irregular ampoule of nuclear foams. Proofs, testimonies, documents of a human and military insanity. Shapes, metamorphosis, colours of a beautiful and atrocious mushroom.
