In soft, almost intimate photographs, Japanese photographer Yasushi Mori portraits his life with Hattori, a cat he adopted. Hattori originally lived in Fukushima but had to flee the area – as many others – when the Great East Japan Earthquake struck in 2011.
While often cute on the surface, Mori’s images also tell a story of an involuntary resettlement, a living in dissonance with one’s surroundings, a being away from home. Through his cat photographs, Mori also concerns himself with the aftermath of the earthquake and the changes it brought to the lives of those who had to leave.
