Hiroshima Prayer 2

Prayer lanterns on the Motoyasu River beside the Atomic Bomb Dome, Hiroshima on the 6th August 2020, exactly 75 years after the bomb was dropped on the city.

This series comes from Philip Clemo & Shout at Cancer’s charity project From Silence Into Song. It marks the 75th anniversary of the catastrophic atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. It also explores the hopes and prayers of the residents from those reborn cities. The imagery in this collection, directed by Philip Clemo and shot by Ryushi Lindsay, was filmed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the commemorative events marking the 75th anniversary of the bombings. The soundscapes have been formed from diverse sound fragments including B29 bombers, Morse code and Japanese songs about the bombings.

From Silence Into Song tells life-affirming stories of survival shaped by the powerful legacy of radiation. It brings together the voices of a choir of cancer survivors, treated with radiotherapy, with a choir of trees that survived the catastrophic nuclear explosions in Japan in 1945. These choirs unite their voices, breaking their silence into a song of hope.

All profits from this series will directly benefit the Shout at Cancer charity.
