Fiona Amundsen's The First City in History is the second project in an ongoing series of works that address both site and the intangible cultural mechanisms - such as economics, politics and history - through which such sites are created.

Focused on Hiroshima around the area of the Peace Memorial Park, Amundsen says: "The project plays on the socio-cultural understanding of both site and photography - the former is linked to how photographs actually do reveal something about what they depict, while the latter is grounded in the notion that space itself is always 'cultural'."
