Faces of Fukushima, Tohoku
After the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku, Japan, the world media quickly fixated on the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. However, Fukushima is just a small part of the devastation that wiped out communities for over a hundred miles north of Fukushima. We wanted to bring attention to these areas and the struggles they will face as they try to rebuild. This will be a multi-decade project as we revisit the locations and people we first met in June of 2011. Many of the pieces are intended to be large format panoramic images.
