AGO's Camera Atomica Exhibition ReviewThe Art Gallery of Ontario continues its 'Year of Photography' with one its latest exhibitions, Camera Atomica. Featuring photographs that encompass the post-war period of the bombings in Japan in 1945 to the Faukushima meltdowns in 2011, Camera Atomica is both amazing and disturbing, touching on issues surrounding nuclear energy through the art of photography.
