With our thoughts and prayers for those affected by the Tohoku-Pacific Ocean earthquake and tsunami, a series of photographs will be on display at the Embassy of Japan from Monday, 28 March 2011. The photographs were taken in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake and tsunami which struck off Japan’s North East coast on Friday, 11 March.

Included in the display are images that show the extent of the damage caused, the conditions that the Japanese rescue services are facing, and the British Search and Rescue Team at work in North East Japan.

The Embassy of Japan is grateful to the Asahi Shimbun, Jiji Press, the Sankei Shimbun and the Yomiuri Shimbun for their generosity in donating the images and to The Color Company for printing them.

Japan Project in London N. 1

Oggi ho deciso di iniziare Japan Project in London (Progetto Giappone a Londra) nato da un’idea che ho avuto qualche mese fa’. Il progetto consiste nel fare foto di cose/persone o di altre cose che hanno a che fare col Giappone nella zona di Londra in modo da creare una specie di documento fotografico sulla cultura Giapponese nella capitale Inglese. Come inizio ho scelto un posto molto semplice e conosciuto che avevo gia’ accennato in un’altro post, il Japan Centre. A presto altre foto.

Today I’ve started  Japan Project in London, a project stemmed from my desire of creating a sort of photographic document of Japanese culture outside Japan; in this case London. Subjects of this project are all objets/people or other thing that have something to do with Japan. For the first photo of this project I decided to use the Japan Centre, a place that I’ve already mentioned in this Blog in a previous post. Soon other pictures.
