1. Hiroshima: Ground Zero 1945
    International Center of Photography
    May 20–August 28, 2011

    After the United States detonated an atomic bomb at Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the U.S. government restricted the circulation of images of the bomb's deadly effect. President Truman dispatched some 1,150 military personnel and civilians, including photographers, to record the destruction as part of the United States Strategic Bombing Survey. The goal of the Survey's Physical Damage Division was to photograph and analyze methodically the impact of the atomic bomb on various building materials surrounding the blast site, the first "Ground Zero." The haunting, once-classified images of absence and annihilation formed the basis for civil defense architecture in the United States. This exhibition includes approximately 60 contact prints drawn from a unique archive of more than 700 photographs in the collection of the International Center of Photography. The exhibition is organized Erin Barnett, Assistant Curator of Collections.

  2. This January my family and I returned to Niseko, Japan after a having a dry week 2 years ago. This year turned out a little different. There wasn't a day without snow and we had the some of the deepest days on snow we may have ever had. A friend from the UK also came to join for a few days at the end and we then carried on after the family had left for another week touring Japanese resorts with Black Diamond Lodge, needless to say it was pretty excellent.

    Being able to get the right balance between filming and skiing was pretty tough and this video really doesn't show how much snow we actually got... it was just to fun to stop and film. I love Japan and will most certainly be going back.

    I would like to dedicate this film to Sarah Burke who recently passed away. I don't know her personally but she was an inspiration to the sport and will be sorely missed.

    Filmed on a 7D and a GroPro HD 2

  4. Documentary following sculptor Shota Kotake as he builds a life-sized, self-portrait, ball-jointed doll of himself. Thoughts on life and death are called into question along the way.

  5. Filmed over 2 weeks in Tokyo, Japan. I first visited Tokyo nearly 10 years ago and was swept away by its futuristic society steeped in ancient culture. Scenes include Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku, Roppongi, Asakusa, Tsukiji fish market, Meiji Shrine, Rainbow Bridge at Odaiba, Tokyo Tower, Yokohama, Mount Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi, and Nikko world-heritage shrines.

    As we visited during the New Year, we were lucky to attend the "dezuiri" sumo ring-entering ceremony, which you'll see in the opening shot. We also captured "yumi hajime" (first archery practice of the year) as well as "hatsumode" (first shrine visit of the year) at Asakusa.

    Other shots include Shinjuku, Shibuya, Roppongi Hills, Meiji Shrine, Rainbow Bridge at Odaiba, Tokyo Tower, Tsukiji fish market, Yokohama, Mount Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi, and Nikko world-heritage shrines.
