Tashiro has visited Sanriku and Fukushima in Japan, where are impacted by the 3/11 Earthquake. Talking with residents while taking their pictures, he assembled a large amount of portraits that were finally developed into a series. When images of the 3/11 Earthquakes were all about crumbling walls and dilapidated houses in the media, Tashiro redefined camera as a tool for communication. These plain, spontaneous portraits and ordinary, daily conversation offer a feeling that people in these pictures are living right in front of the eyes of the audiences.
