This book documents the effects of the powerful earthquake that struck the northeastern coast of Japan in March of 2011, followed by the tsunami that overwhelmed the town of Otsuchi in the prefecture of Iwate.

The book gathers family photographs of the inhabitants of Otsuchi, found after the disaster, and places them in dialogue with images of the survivors amidst the ruins of their homes.

“Otsuchi: Future Memories” leads us to reflect on the dynamic relationship between family photographs and our memories in the wake of such calamities.
