Tohoku: The Big Picture   

Photographer Vicente J. Luna, 49, is taking a wide-angled approach to preserving images of the Tohoku region's coastline following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster.

In his photo collection "360 Views of Tohoku," destruction and reconstruction are shown side by side - all 360 degrees with little editing - to show that "Tohoku doesn't need to be pitiful or boring, but can be original, creative and impacting."

"Towards a nostalgic future," Luna reads out a message on one of his works. "I think that says a lot about my pictures, and perhaps photography in general. ... What we're doing by taking pictures today is we are creating the future. In 10, 20 years people can look back and say something is nostalgic. I am creating memories."

Luna's photo project began in 2014 after he visited the tsunami-hit town of Minamisanriku, Miyagi Prefecture - with a 360-degree camera - 10 years after his first trip there. Since then, he has tried to return every year to take photos in the same spots to record change - or lack of it - in communities.

Originally from Spain, Luna was drawn to Japanese traditional and industrial design. He lived in Sendai from 2001 to 2008, working as a marketing director for regional and local governments and holding events. Luna continues his work in Tokyo.

While his goal is to present areas along Tohoku's coast with as much visual impact as possible, he also wants to make people look a little longer and discover something about a place or a scene only visible when all angles are laid bare. From there, he hopes those who see his pictures will be inspired to take the same journey for themselves.

"Three hundred sixty is a way of rediscovering pictures … it encourages people to discover a little bit more of what's here or what's there," Luna says. "That's not just nice, it's really necessary." (Story by Alina Kordesch, The Mainichi Staff Writer)
