Virginia Tech Helps Japan Document a Tragedy

May 16, 2013

Japan Tsunami Photography Exhibit

In the wake of great tragedy, great beauty has been known to emerge.

A photography project by people living in temporary housing in a Japanese coastal town devastated by the Tsunami two years ago, offers a record of rebuilding and recovery for the photographers.

The exhibit is called, “We Are All Photographers," a title echoing the phrase, “We are all Hokies”  heard around the world after the Virginia Tech tragedy.

The photo exhibit documenting the recovery of this Japanese coastal town will travel the U.S and return to Virginia Tech, where it will be housed in the library’s special collections.
