As the sequel to the original, this volume is a photo letter woven from Sato’s thoughts and photographic observations from September 11, 2011 to the memorial ceremony held March 11, 2012. The photography collection is part of an ongoing effort by Mr. Sato to record for posterity the travails of his hometown and loved ones by documenting its recovery over a 10-year span. In the spirit of Mr. Sato’s conviction that “the important thing is to continue,” ADK is proud to publish this sequel.
ADK plans to continuously and periodically publish a “Photo Letter from Minami Sanriku series. This project will convey the true form of the disaster area, as opposed to shocking reporting of fragmented information.
