Quake, Tsunami and Meltdown – Surviving Japan’s 3/11 Photography Exhibition & Talk – October 26 – 28, 2012
An exhibition and photographer discussion about photography, photojournalism and an ongoing project that documents how 300,000 stoic Japanese refugees, of the 3/11 Great East Japan Earthquake, stepped out of 3,000 cramped shelters to rebuild their homes, business and lives together – even though 27 tsunami hit cities and towns no longer exist.
This is their timeless and historic story of how they are surviving the world’s most unique combined and expensive disaster.
Every face and every story in the exhibition shall be a reminder to those who do not take the past as proof
against the future.
