The Manhattan Project by Noah Scalin

American artist Noah Scalin created these unique series of portraits of scientists who worked on the creation of the first atomic weapons, titled 'The Manhattan Project'. Each image is meticulously made of 1,000 matches and then burned.

"The resulting burned after images are reminiscent of the permanent nuclear shadows of the victims of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima. Also included are silhouettes of Fatman and LittleBoy, the first two atomic bombs, which were dropped on Japan."
