Araki Nobuyoshi, Tokyo Radiation August 6-15th, 2010: Araki was receiving radiation treatment for cancer and every morning he “looked at the sky from where the bombs came”.

“Other people brush their teeth, I brush my eyes,”


he said.
Green, D. and Lowry, J. (2003):

“The very act of photography, as a kind of

performative gesture, which points to an event in the world,


as a form of designation…
is thus itself a form of indexicality.”
