Chromogenic Print of an Atom-Bombed Dress, Ishiuchi Miyako, 2008
Miyako photographed clothing and accessories left behind by victims of the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
“from the 19,000 items made available to me [at the hiroshima peace memorial museum], i chose things that at one time had touched skin and bodies, and photographed them…. a flower-patterned dress colourfully dyed. a puff of gathered, shiny skirt woven of silk thread. cool-looking, thin, gorgeous materials that once shed the summer heat. used kimonos transformed into blouses and cut to make air-raid hoods…. these objects, exposed to the heat and radioactive rays of a fire ball that suddenly appeared one summer morning, and relinquished by the victims of the atomic bombing, have been on earth as long as i have. when i came to realize the coincidence,i caught my breath at their vivid hues and distinct textures, their flaws and complicated detail. these are too deeply linked to daily lives to regard as ‘historical materials.’”

Cotton-Themed Wedding : Rustic Elegance
This Colorado stunner is the perfect example of a rustic elegance done right. Think bridesmaids in cowboy boots, a bride in glamourous white pumps, and lots of cotton flown in from Georgia. Not only is this southwest fête as darling as they come but it's also overflowing with the type of charm you can't only get when you tie the knot against the gorgeous mountains and bright blue skies of Colorado. Captured all by Two One Photography, theses DIY-inspired, budget-friendly + totally effortless nuptials are such a pretty way to wrap up our week... don't you think?
From the Photographer... Jordan and Rusch were such a cute couple and they had so many friends and family to support them on their big day. They were married on a late summer morning at The Manor House in Littleton, CO. There were so many great details that were a part of their charming wedding. Again, they literally had cotton flown in from Georgia.
The pecan pies and plethora of southern treats were made by Perrie Bonner from Lost Valley Ranch. The cake and flowers were from Costco. Jordan’s father was quite a hoot as well, he had a great wig he wore for the father/daughter dance which was hilarious. The wig ended up getting passed around the dance party.
