Appearing in “Imagining Tomorrow IWATE” produced by Reconstruction Agency

2021.03.10

I am very honored to have the opportunity to appear in the video, “Imagining Tomorrow IWATE” produced by Reconstruction Agency in Japan. As a foreign photographer living in Japan, I reported on the current reconstruction efforts in Iwate Prefecture 10 years after The Great East Japan Earthquake.

The Great East Japan Earthquake struck on March 11, 2011, about ten years after moving from Canada to Okayama, here in Japan. Since the disaster, I have been very interested in documenting the human side of it as a photographer from overseas and, above all, as a person living in Japan. Every time I saw any related information, it made me want to visit the disaster area even more, talk directly with the local people, and get in touch with the “now” of the city.

With this project, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to do just that. I was able to go to many places, meet and talk with many local people, and now I understand the situation at the time of the disaster, the progress and events after that, and the “now” of Iwate Prefecture.

It was a very valuable experience and I am very proud to be able to participate in this project.

The produced video (Normal Ver / Short Ver) is here. Have a check it!
