In search of Hiroshima's 'Survivor Trees'

British Artist Amanda Chambers travelled to Hiroshima to search for the trees that survived the Atomic-Bomb in 1945 – The Hibaku-Jumoku or Survivor Trees.

She was particularly inspired by the strength of nature in the face of man-made destruction, and how today, the trees offer humanity both a silent warning and a symbol of peace.
