the narrow road to the deep north

Almost 9 months after the tsuami devastated the town, I was offered the chance to visit  Minami Sanriku (or Minamisanriku-cho, depending on how you choose to transliterate it) to participate in their “revival market”. The market is an amazing monthly event, designed to raise funds to re-build shops and factories and generally rebuild the heart of the town that was so tragically obliterated on March 11. The market was full of optimism and shining smiles, and the town seems to be in the process of getting back on its feet, though the destruction is still evident on the flat land. I’m still processing the experience, but in the meantime, I’ve put up some of my photographs over on flickr.
