This poster by Uwe Loesch is to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the dropping of “Little Boy” on Hiroshima. The image of a young boy reminds viewers of those affected by the bomb, as well as serving as a warning for the future about nuclear weapons. The minimalist design juxtaposes the name of the bomb with the actual image of a young boy.  Surreal also reminds us of the radiation people were exposed to when the bomb was dropped.
