三陸海岸 - SANRIKU
Photography

In March 2011 the Tohoku earthquake hit the pacific coast from Japan. It was the strongest earthquake in Japan since the beginning of the earthquake measuring and triggered the big tsunami and the nuclear catastrophe from Fukushima.
More than 18 000 people were killed. Huge areas were destroyed by the power of the water and many areas are nuclear contaminated.There is still no solution of the nuclear problem.

These images were taken on a journey through Japan in 2001. 10 years before the catastrophe on the Sanriku coast, the area that was hit the most. I visited areas that are not existing anymore, some villages on the coast were just flushed away and were slowly rebuild. Many areas will be still strongly radioactive contaminated for a ver long time.
