Hiromi Tsuchida

Dress

c. 1979-1982, printed 1994
Mitsuyo Furukawa (35 at the time) was in her garden (1,600 meters from the hypocenter) watering the vegetables. Although she was badly burned on her chest and arms, she wandered around the scorched land for a week, looking for Mieko, her eldest daughter, who had been mobilized for fire prevention work at Tsurumi-cho. This is the dress she was wearing then.
