On March 11, 2011, Fukushima Prefecture was struck by an earthquake, a tsunami. A resulting nuclear accident caused large areas of land - where humans had for centuries co-existed with and cultivated the nature - would suddenly become uninhabitable. Using remote-controlled flying drones, photographer Hiromi Tsuchida began a longlasting documentation project.

In his photobook Fukushima 2011-2017, Tsuchida contrasts scenes taken soon after the catastrophe with pictures taken years later at the exact same location, and thereby carves out the manifold changes that previously habitated landscapes have already undergone in the absence of human life.
