New Release (Fiction)
These images, more dramatically than any description, tell the story of one of the worst catastrophes in the history of mankind: the frightful earthquake and subsequent tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11, 2011. Over 18, 000 were killed and went missing. Yasushi Hanada, one of Japan’s most accomplished photographers here presents the landscape 20 days after the ocean water had retreated using a 65-million pixel camera; the pictures seem almost surreal as they capture details missed by the naked eye. There are no people in these photos, nonetheless they reveal the pitiful scars and wasteland of debris left behind. The media has typically displayed, in relation to this tragedy, people determined to move beyond their misfortune. This book, in contrast, puts the harsh realities first and forefront and is a timeless reminder of the beauty of futility.
