A nuclear disaster brings indescribable misery in its wake with many dead and survivors’ health permanently affected by nuclear radiation. It is such a scary sight to see such devastation around whichever way we turn and to think it was all because of causes beyond our control only makes things worse. The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster was an accident at the nuclear energy plant induced by the Tsunami triggered by the Tōhoku earthquake on 11 March 2011 in Japan. A Polish photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski travelled to Fukushima and took these haunting photographs.
Here we share 21 photos taken in Fukushima five years hence and which remains as a stark reminder of the extent of devastation and suffering experienced by the Japanese at that time.
