NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN is a photographic journey that will be made by photographer Mark Paul over 50 days from August 8th to September 24th, 2011 covering 300 Miles on foot (actually closer to 600), and 45 districts affected by the Tōhoku earthquake, tsunami, and current nuclear crisis. He will document the inner strength of the Japanese people as they deal with the aftermath of the tragedy. Every man, woman, child, and animal have a story that deserves to be told. The victims feel voiceless.
I apologize if I am not much for words and there has been a bit of silence the last few days. I am back in Tokyo safe. Resting, taking meetings, and preparing for my return to the United States. We were never able to enter the Exclusion Zone. The typhoon and my injury made it to dangerous for us to travel into the area. I am hoping in the future that there will be an opportunity for me to go there. Below are some of my final pictures. Thank you all for your support. If you have not received an image as promised on behalf of your contribution I will do so within the next 10 days. Enjoy.
