Fukushima – The amazing pictures of abandoned ghost towns

2016-07-14 // japan photography

Like Chernobyl, the nuclear exclusion zone of Fukushima fuels the imagination, between revolting ecological disaster and fascinating lawless zone. The Malaysian photographer Keow Wee Loong decided to cross the barricades of the nuclear exclusion zone of Fukushima, to photograph Okuma, Namie, Futaba or Tamioka, some ghost towns abandoned after the tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear disaster in March 2011. Some amazing photographs from which emerges a real atmosphere of doom. I also highly recommend you take a look at the photographs of Arkadiusz Podniesinski, as well as the series Fukushima No Go Zone and Mauvais rêves ?.
