The Fukushima disaster forced 80,000 residents to evacuate their homes and left the area surrounding the nuclear power plant devoid of human life, an entire town sitting there slowly rotting for the last five years.
Carlos and Guillaume on "No go zone":
In this new series, we wanted to highlight the terrible shock felt by locals who return. We asked former residents and landowners to return to their businesses and schools, to push open the doors to these once everyday settings. Facing the camera, they reacted as though, “nothing had happened,” and behaved normally. The strange and the commonplace come together in these almost supernatural and yet plausible photographs, the result of a historic nuclear disaster.
