Rememberance .....

It is one year since the disaster "The Great Higashinhon Earthquake" and tsunami which killed over 19.000 thousand people and left small communities like Kesennuma, Rikuzen-Takada, Kamaishi devastated. In the beginning of the ninetíes respected Japanese photographer Koji Onaka travelled around and photographed this area of Sanriku, in the northern east cost of Japan. He collected some of these photographs in a book entitled Umimachi [SuperLabo, 2011]. Highly recommendable!
