Flowers blooming after the tsunami

2013年09月19日 23:22

In early May, about two months after the tsunami, I walked around the damaged area in Kirikiri with my camera. I visited Kirikiri a few times after the tsunami to volunteer and help my parents, and also I tried to keep a record of the situation by taking photos. At that time, rubble was being cleared gradually so some rubble still remained.


In the damaged area, most of the houses were demolished so we could only see the foundations. While I was walking around the area, I found a flower blooming near the foundation of a house. I was surprised that it remained even though it was hit by the tsunami. This made me think just how strong that flower was and the life force of nature is amazing!

This is why I was interested in these flowers. After a while, I discovered that these flowers were planted by the people who lived in the area before the tsunami. These people lost all their belongings along with the house. The only thing remaining was the foundation of the house and the flowers blooming around the foundation. I think it has a special meaning for them. When they see these flowers, they can remind them of the days before the tsumami.

ピンクのバラ





However, when the cleaning of the rubble has been completed, even the foundations of the houses will also disappear. Therefore, the memory of their houses will not be there in the future. That’s why I thought recording these flowers in photos was important and I took as many photos as I could when I found some of these flowers.

Someday I hope to hold a small exhibition featuring these photos in Kirikiri, and I also want to present these photos to the owners of the houses.
