This traveling exhibition on loan from The Japan Foundation features over 120 photographs from Tohoku. Curated by Japanese photography critic Kotaro Iizawa to mark the second anniversary of the great earthquake, the show does not attempt to document the damage or recovery but instead uses photography to show the natural and cultural environment of Tohoku, along with its people and their ways of life.

This exhibition is co-organized with the Consulate General of Japan in Nashville.
