Urban Memory

 When I saw a video of the ruined city in Ukraine, it reminded me of the picture of the Bombing of Tokyo during the World War II. Tokyo was completely devastated. I looked back at those photos, and I saw Tokyo in modern times again. This big city that I saw through the camera lens, was like a diorama. Peace is more sensitive and more fragile than I think. As the  memories of Tokyo’s burnt earth fade away, the awareness for peace may be lost as well. It’s somewhat ironic that the image of war causes people to think about the importance of peace.
