Haunting Photos Of The Everyday Objects That Survived The Atomic Bomb

From broken eyeglasses to remnants of dresses to parts of false teeth.

For eight years, Japanese photographer Ishiuchi Miyako traveled to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, over 500 miles away from her hometown of Yokosuka, Japan, to document the women's everyday objects that were left after the 1945 atomic bomb attacks. 

This year, 70 years after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Ishiuchi is exhibiting her photographs at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles -- her first exhibition in the United States. The show, titled "Postwar Shadows," opened on Oct. 6 and will run until Feb. 21, 2016. 

Take a look at the hauntingly beautiful photographs of the objects that survived the atomic bomb, from broken eyeglasses to remnants of dresses and parts of false teeth.
