In March of 2011, the biggest nuclear disaster since Chernobyl occurred in Japan. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was caused by an earthquake and then a resulting tsunami.

The devastating string of events caused thousands of deaths, and over 100,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes in the Fukushima Daiichi area.

Photographers Carlos Ayesta and Guillaume Bression were on the ground on the days after the disaster, documenting the horrific events — but their more recent project is a breathtaking series of staged photographs of locals returning to the “no-go” zone.
