these are four scanned pictures of hardcopies of the french nuclear test codenamed licorne, which was fired on august 24, 1970. the french army had these pictures taken on site. 64 years ago on the 6th of august, a 4 tonne uranium bomb was dropped on the japanese city of hiroshima. it killed 70,000 people on impact with another 70,000 survivors later dying from the injuries and radiation exposure by 1950. i'll blog some images later of that event because the complete destruction is sobering. but these images are incredible, there's something very elegant and peaceful about it's structure and colour, despite its intentions.
