Cellphoneography: Working On Peace

Welcome to Nagasaki Peace Park.
In two days Hiroshima will commemorate the first atomic bomb blast. Shortly after Nagasaki will honor the anniversary of the last atomic bomb blast. Preparations are under way — a huge dome is being erected and to either side of the monument to peace, the workers are setting up two abstract images of the paper cranes you’ll find heaped and piled all over the park. Made by children all over the world, they symbolize the hope that peace is eternal.
