It will soon be the first anniversary of the huge
earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan's Tohoku region.
Hundreds of thousands of images have been taken since the disaster
and most of these naturally focus on documenting the scale of the
devastation. In my view, little interesting work that goes beyond
straightforward visual description has emerged as yet. One of the
strongest projects started up immediately in the aftermath of the
disaster when the photographer Aichi Hirano decided to distribute
disposable cameras to the people in the shelters in the devastated
region. He retrieved the cameras, developed the film and published
the results at www.rolls7.com. I have written about the
Rolls Tohoku project before on the blog and Hirano has continued to add new
images to the Rolls website since then.
