The exhibit.

Portraits of the Hibakusha | 80 Years Remembered is a series of 52 Lenticular portraits of the survivors of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A collection with great historical significance, we hope to facilitate discussion for the legacies of nuclear bombing, testing, and the urgency of nuclear disarmament.

There are now very few of the hibakusha left alive, and time is running out for them. This exhibition aims to document their memories and messages to the future, bringing visitors face to face with their earnest messages. Their three-dimensional images and their stories will say much more than words alone. ​

These holographic portraits are documents of national and global significance, and ensure that the hibakusha are memorialised as an archive of experiences that can be exhibited worldwide for future generations.

The "hibakusha" are the surviving victims of the atomic bombs which fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
