Four weeks in Japan

I had the pleassure to travel to Japan once more. This time my main focus was documenting the life and the revitalization of Iwaishima. Apart from that, I met some of the Hibakusha, that I got to know during my Black Rain Hibakusha project. They are facing a trial, demanding their official recognition. But judging from what I see, this is going to take really long. I think that's a shame considering the age and health conition of the people involved.
So now, I am editing my story on Iwaishima. Quite a task with the amount of photos I took over the last three years. So I hope, I will have the time to continue my calendar shooting for Tretwerk Messengers. And tomorrow, I will leave my profession and help my friend Marc Pierschel filming his most recent documentary.
