Robert Longo Collection
Robert Longo continues to explore the potential of his crisp, breath-taking style, particularly through imagery of powerful figures and events. 
Part of "The Sickness of Reason" series, this powerful asrtwork concentrates the essence of an uncontrollable and dangerous nature, capturing the tension encapsulated in one of the most complicated and emotionally charged subjects of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: nuclear weapons.

Russian Bomb (Semipalatinsk)- Pigment print.
The forever frozen image of the moment of the bomb’s detonation parallels Longo’s renderings of crashing waves, for in both he concentrates the essence of an uncontrollable and dangerous nature into a single image.
