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.
