With 'Nuclear, Democracy and Beyond', the Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus in Berlin is exhibiting pictures of the Chernobyl and Fukushima catastrophes taken by two Japanese photojournalists. They remain on display till May 22, 2016.
Two Japanese photojournalists draw the Chernobyl and Fukushima catastrophes up close, no longer at a safe distance, revealing moments of reality on location. Ryûichi Hirokawa, who founded The Chernobyl Children’s Fund, uses his camera to document the nuclear accident and its consequences, the contaminated environment and the forbidden, dead zones, and those who, despite the dangers of radiation, have returned to those zones. He has been committed to helping the victims for decades.
Since the seventies, Kenji Higuchi has been following nuclear power station contract workers who work under inhuman conditions, exposed to great danger. The names of both photojournalists are inseparably linked to Japan's anti-nuclear movement.
