Six Months Later, the Tsunami's Impact on Japanese Life

Photographer Jérémie Souteyrat has spent the last six months documenting life in Japan since the March 11, 2011, tsunami that devastated the Fukushima region. His photographs capture the struggles and resilience of the region’s citizens, who now check food for radiation (photo 1) and plant sunflowers to absorb radioactive substances (photo 2). The shelters that housed thousands are largely empty (photo 5), yet some children chose not to return to their old schools (photo 3), and worries persist about the impact of contaminated soil on crops (photo 6).
