This Video Breathes Life Into These Compelling Fukushima Disaster Photos

An emotionally-charged view of the disaster’s lasting impact.

British photographer Rebecca Lilith Bathory had the chance to capture the devastating effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster five years after the horrific incident. In this riveting look at the artist’s work, we see an awe-inspiring video interpretation of some of the scenes she shot. Directed by Chris Lavelle using mapping techniques, the co-collaborator breathes life into Rebecca’s pictures by adding minimalist effects and a sombre soundtrack. The result is an emotionally-charged piece that magnifies the devastation that occurred in this part of the world — we see abandoned homes, unkempt streets, stray pets and shops left in rubble.

Watch the video above and take a look at this recent post on another photo project about the Fukushima disaster.
