Tohoku: Images of a Disaster

24th January - 24th March 2012

The exhibition comprises images by Japanese and international photographers revealing the terrifying drama and damage wreaked by the earthquake and tsunami along Japan's north-eastern coastline on 11th March 2011.

The work is a mix of art, documentation, reportage and interpretation, first shown in Tokyo earlier this year by Mark Pearson at Zen Foto Gallery. The exhibition will be in place on the first anniversary of the disaster, providing an opportunity for remembrance and commemoration.
