The latest photo essay from Leica and Magnum. Domonic Nahr, the Oskar Barnack award winner from 2009 travels to Fukushima to cover the nuclear situation that has become part of life for the residents there. It is interesting to see the western take on this terrible problem. Nahr has a sensitive view and highlights the issue without sensationalism.
I hope that many more people watch this and realize what people are going through in Fukushima and the surrounding areas, they still need our help, as the government is sweeping them into a cupboard, to be forever forgotten.
