Altered Land – Perspectives from Tohoku
These photographs, showing the devastation caused by the tsunami in the area around Minami-Sanriku in Japan one year ago, were taken in March 2012. A series of photographs of local fishermen from the town of Shizugawa is included in the exhibition. After loosing their boats, houses, and members of their families, the men have formed a co-operative, sharing and working together with the few basics left over by the tsunami. The video documents the difficulties communities have, a year after the tsunami, knowing how to assess the risk of radiation exposure.
