Fukushima’s Four Years Later

The nuclear meltdown in Fukushima, Japan was really just the cherry on top of an already devastating afternoon. An initial earthquake rocked the area, which triggered a tsunami that ravaged the shore, which led to the nuclear meltdown. After the plant went bottoms up, the area was completely evacuated, creating a 12.5 mile exclusion zone in all directions around the plant.

Photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski went into the exclusions zone, armed with a camera, to see how the area looks four years later. What he found is a testament to Mother Nature’s tenacity.
