The opera Dr. Atomic makes the native American connection a decade after Nagatani did -- they too being ghosts of a genocide -- with a native (Kewa, I believe) mezzo soprano singing eulogies on the eve of the test explosion at the Trinity site.
Much of modern harajuku fashion and manga and anime iconography in Japan is based on the Japanese being, with New Mexicans, the only atomic peoples -- from Godzilla to radioactive-symbol t shirts worn with samurai warrior kilts to Barefoot Gen, the original atomic comic. It is interesting to see the techniques used by a Japanese American to manipulate the colors and the images, very much in the grand tradition of sublime Japanese graphics.
The photographs are very beautiful and very creepy. The placement of Japanese and native American people in the landscapes of atomic warfare is an important way of honoring the ghosts and I appreciate it.
It's polemic without being unartistic. Because all those bombs and bombers are....beautiful, may God forgive us.
