A zine about visiting the Trinity site, where the first atomic bomb was exploded. From the website:

Once a year, the White Sands Missile Range opens its gates to allow visitors to step foot on to Ground Zero of the Trinity atomic bomb test location. On April 5, 2014, friends and I travelled to experience the site for ourselves. I spent the whole time staring at the visitors—trying to figure out who they were, why they were there, what they felt they needed to do, and what that might mean about both us as people and the site itself. The result is stabilized and sealed, a portrait of the experience of the place.
