poignant story about a man determined to live his life in the affected tsunami zone as "normally" as possible, despite nobody being around and radiation still rampant - until even that life is taken away from him. sad that, for the most part, these people have dropped off the world's radar.
About two months after 3/11 I started working on a long-term documentary photo project in Fukushima. I traveled to the region with my bicycle, then rode across Iitate into Minamisoma and entered the 20 kilometer evacuation zone in order to document the fate of the many abandoned livestock and pet dogs and cats.

While working in the exclusion zone, I came across a man, Shoji Kobayashi, who had remained living in his home in a town where everyone had evacuated, just 15 kilometers from the Daiichi reactor. Kobayashi became the central subject of my story.

I continued follow-up trips every few weeks for three months. Today I edited the hundreds of photos taken down to this 20-photo story, which I'm first publishing on Google+. Since I haven't seen social documentary photo stories published here on Google+ before, I thought I'd experiment and see how well the platform works for this kind of project. Thank you for your comments and than you for resharing!

the first questioner on this clip looks like matt damon. regardless, this is pretty fantastic - wish they'd questioned him a bit more about that day.

vote still has to go through on it - will be interesting to see how much dissent still makes itself known. it's certainly not ideal for either party but it's SOMETHING ... and something had to be done.

so it's been a couple weeks using the free version of spotify and i'm really enjoying it. has anyone made the upgrade to a paid account? is it really worth it, you think? i'm willing to shell out the ten bucks a month but i don't have a phone that can run the app just yet, and i can't download the client at work ... do we know if they're planning on cutting unlimited access to free users?

so, obviously, the most important thing to do when a riot is bearing down on you is ... plank. (source: http://www.buzzfeed.com/gavon/the-electric-daisy-riot)

anyone else think this fad's a little weird?

dammit. RIP, amy winehouse... she was one of my favorite artists out there today. i've cried, loved, driven, fought, lost and been had a blast to her music. it's a shame that you were such a troubled soul ... you could have been a legend.
