Posted on by Bellamy

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.

Summer with a Leica

Posted on by Bellamy

Or ‘strolling the streets of Japan with a Leica’ Japan has been having a hell of a year, possibly the worst in living memory.
