About The Poster:

This poster was created for a book release which took place in 1981 in Montreal, Canada. The exhibition featured the photographies and research of Robert Del Tredici.

"Robert Del Tredici is an artist, photographer, and teacher with a BA in philosophy, an MA in Comparative Literature (University of California, Berkeley), and an interest in the dynamic between image and text. His first sustained artwork was a series of 100 pen-and-ink illustrations to Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, done in the early 1960s. He studied under Tibetan teacher Chogyam Trungpa in the early 1970s, who gave him the name “Good Eye of Enlightenment.”

Del Tredici began documenting the nuclear age in 1979. His first book of photographs and interviews, The People of Three Mile Island (Sierra Club Books, 1980), was part sociology and part critique of nuclear power. His second book, At Work in the Fields of the Bomb (Harper & Row, 1987), documented the US nuclear weapons industry and won the 1987 Olive Branch Book Award for its contribution to world peace."
