Antony R Owen’s Hiroshima poems

Here is Antony R Owen’s exhibition for Hiroshima. A collection of short poems known as Haiku featuring photography by Daniel O’Toole. They are very moving with vivid, sharp images. The poems enabled me to take the time to reflect on the tragedy during the 69th anniversary. It is almost beyond comprehension; the sun-hot burning of people, plants, animals. The worst example of human destruction. I hope it never happens again. It actually makes me feel ashamed that humans could even do something like that to other humans.

This was exhibited at The International Peace Museum, Hiroshima in 2013 and the Chapel of Unity (Coventry Cathedral) in 2012.
