Remembering 11311

2011.3.11 is the day a massive earthquake and tsunami hit the Tohoku region in northeast Japan. No words can describe the devastation. The unprecedented recovery effort is still in it’s early phase. It will be a long slow journey taking years. Any support, large or small, is appreciated from any part of the world. Support can be in the form of fundraising events and strategies, discussions and seminars, concerts, art, poetry or a just a few words of thought and care. There is something each one of us can do, and collectively that will generate the energy to move forward and create an opportunity of an improved future for all.



3/11 Tsunami Photo Project Slideshow (Kodansha)

On May 11, two months after the East Japan Earthquake, Kodansha launched a slideshow of the 3/11 Tsunami Photo Project with the soundtrack by Japanese musician/composer Sakamoto Ryuichi (4.5 minutes). The project - an English-Japanese bilingual digital book of 120 photographs taken by 14 photographers from 8 countries- includes recorded and written messages by the photographers to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami. Sakamoto donated the music titled ‘Kizuna World’ (Kizuna: bond, ties between people).
