This book examines narratives beyond the technological sublimethat dominates much nuclear photography, suppressing representations of the human form in favor of representations of B-52 bombers and mushroom clouds. The book proposes that the body is the site where the social environment interacts with the so-called atomic road: uranium mining and processing, radiation research, nuclear reactor construction and operation, and weapons testing. Co-published with the Art Gallery of Ontario to accompany a major exhibition there in 2014.0Cameras have both recorded and - in certain instances - provided motivation for the production of nuclear events. Their histories and technological development are intimately intertwined: at McGill University in the early 1900s, for example, Ernest Rutherford employed photography to identify the properties of radioactive materials, winning a Nobel Prize for his research, and at Los Alamos in the mid-1940s, Julian E. Mack and Berlyn Brixner designed specialized cameras for measuring the blast yield of nuclear weapons.0.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/2510542618#Person\/o_brian_john<\/a>> ; # John O\'Brian<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/2510542618<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"Ausstellungskatalog<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Camera Atomica<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"1011390731<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781908966483<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1011390731<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
