The postwar “Japanese economic miracle” took place in the wake of incredible destruction―indiscriminate bombing by US forces during the Second World War had destroyed millions of homes, killed 330,000 Japanese citizens and injured 430,000 others. Children wounded in the war were an uncomfortable reminder of the devastation, and many chose lives of secrecy and concealment, continuing to silently struggle with their injuries and disabilities as adults. Photographer Kazuma Obara (born 1985) sheds light on these “silent histories” with a collection of sensitive portraits of six survivors interspersed with historical and personal material, including school photographs, views of Japanese cities in 1945, personal snapshots and government-issued disability cards. A powerful and moving document, Kazuma Obara: Silent Histories was originally published in a limited edition of 45 handmade copies, and is now available for the first time in a trade edition.

Review:

This book is a statement on the long lasting effects of war, and a call to arms to create legislation that offers compensation to civilian victims during conflict. (Forrest Soper Photo-Eye Blog, Best of 2016)

Book Description RM VERLAG, España, 2016. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Condition: Nuevo. 162 pp. Silent Histories es un testimonio de la tragedia causada por el bombardeo indiscriminado de las fuerzas norteamericanas durante la Guerra del Pacífico, donde 9.7 millones de personas perdieron su hogar. En medio de esta enorme destrucción, los niños sufrieron las principales consecuencias. Este libro da voz a 7 de esas historias que se han mantenido en silencio durante 69 años. La obra incluye los retratos de Kazuma Obara de cada uno de los supervivientes y se entremezclan con fotos personales y con réplicas de las revistas de propaganda utilizadas durante el tiempo de guerra, ofreciendo con ello una narración del todo singular y desconcertante. Silent Histories se publicó originalmente en 2014, en una edición limitada de 45 ejemplares hechos a mano. El libro fue incluido en Paris Photo/Aperture Photo Book Award, y seleccionado por TIME, Lens Culture, y Telegraph como el Mejor Photobook de 2014. Seller Inventory # (P)MAC9788416282302
