Things Left Behind
Number of Death: 15,891 / Number of Missing: 2,584 (March 10, 2015)
4 years have passed since The Great East Japan Earthquake
It is recorded as ‘a’ great disaster but it will not be long before it becomes ‘a’ history. However, sadness and suffering have been engraved on individual mind of all victims. ‘My son was killed by a collapsed house and My wife has been missing by Tsunami.’ The number of opportunities to hear such a stories from victims have been decreasing year by year. One day I had an opportunity to see things left behind. When I saw them I could not help imaging a variety of stories from them and these works are the records of these ‘individual stories’.
