Fukushima - several years after the nuclear disaster

On March 11, 2011 a powerful earthquake triggered a tsunami near the Eastern coast of Japan that led to the notorious Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. These pictures by a polish photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski demonstrate the present state of things in the exclusion zone.

The photographer visited the exclusion zone in 2015. The aim of his project is to show the consequences of Fukushima disaster and to draw people’s attention to the threat of possible nuclear catastrophes in the future. Through his works Podniesinski tries to render the message that only humans are to blame for what has happened: TEPCO, a company that maintains the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, admitted that it failed to take stronger measures to prevent disasters for fear of inviting lawsuits or protests against its nuclear plants.

It's time to update this article. It has been FIVE years since the disaster, not four as stated in your opening sentence. If you're going to post old material, at least take the time to amend it to keep it current.

Such a horror that has been mostly hushed up. The man with his animals touched me the most. .

I do not understand why the WORLD is not helping stop this continued radiation into the Ocean. Something is really wrong with that!!!

To me this is an example of Big Business wants only the money and not taking proper care of their facility. The tsunami, earthquake or other disasters should be in all businesses safety plans, especially a nuclear plant. Look at the lose of life ,homes and property of so many. I live in Hawaii and it is still a worry of contaminated fish and other creatures of the sea. The oil companies seem to wait until after the fact. What happened to businesses being responsible for their actions! Mahalo for listening. Love & Aloha dj
