Curated by Jamason Chen
絆 Kizuna 4: Through Our Eyes is an original photo collection illustrating the personal and dynamic spectrum of Japan’s ongoing recovery following the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11, 2011. For three years, the Kizuna exhibitions have connected Chicago to Japan, and are a continued sign of support and remembrance for the people of the recovering Tohoku region. Now, Kizuna 4 gives a fresh perspective on the current state of recovery though the eyes of an American photographer and curator (Jamason Chen), a renowned Sendai-based photographer dedicated to documenting the recovery process (Kiyotaka Shishido), and a Chicago-based non-profit (113Project.org) . These three contributors traveled separately to Tohoku in 2014 and photographed changing landscapes, individual stories, and vibrant communities. The selections highlight the parallax of recovery and capture Tohoku, now.
