A collection of photographs, interviews and comments aimed at making the secretive nuclear arms industry visible to the general public.

Abstract:  At Home in the Field of the Bomb is a collection of photographs, interviews and comments with the aim of making the secretive nuclear arms industry visible to the general public. Del Tredici gives us a step by step guide on where uranium comes from and how it ends up as a nulear warhead. The black and white photographs of nuclear plants reveal the ominous size of these complexes. Along with the stunning photography there are interviews with scientists, designers, assemblers, detractors and defendors. With interviews from survivors of the bomb the abstract idea becomes reality.
