Patrick Allen Ryiochi Nagatani


"Patrick Nagatani, Photographer Famous for Collages, Dies at 72," Obituary by Sam Roberts, November 13, 2017, The New York Times.

Patrick Nagatani, a Japanese-American who was born just days after an atomic bomb obliterated Hiroshima, his family’s hometown, and who devoted his photographic career to evoking the nuclear legacy of the adopted nation that interned his parents during World War II, died on Oct. 27 at his home in Albuquerque. He was 72.
