Something to Breathe looks to the future as a personal protest against weapons of mass destruction.
Originally created as a photography and sound installation to mark the 75th Anniversary of the atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki of 1945 it was scheduled to be shown at this year’s Freedom Festival.
The exhibition has been postponed until next year however, despite not being able to open the exhibition we felt it was important to mark the anniversary and for the voices of the women survivors featured in Lee's work to be shared.
In the following zoom conversation recorded during lockdown and video messages, three generations of Hiroshima women reflect on the 75th Anniversary of the first atomic bombings on people and why their call for a world without nuclear weapons is more urgent than ever.
Part of the #SomethingToBreathe project by Hull documentary photographer Lee Karen Stow.
