Fukushima – Some impressive photographs from the nuclear exclusion zone

2015-10-12 // japan photography

The latest photographs from the nuclear exclusion zone of Fukushima, Japan, captured by the Polish photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski, who took the opportunity to visit this region abandoned after the accident that affected the nuclear plant of Fukushima Dai-ichi in 2011. Since the massive earthquake and its devastating tsunami that have led to the nuclear accident, the exclusion zone of about 20 km in diameter is a deserted and prohibited area, unless special permission. The exclusion zone of Fukushima provides a striking post-apocalyptic vision where nature is slowly taking over the ruins of abandoned cities… The complete series and the story of his expedition are to discover on his portfolio.
