The accident at the Fukushima-1 occurred on 14 March 2011. Polish photographer Arkadiusz Podnesinski (Arkadiusz Podniesiński) spent two weeks in the exclusion zone to create a project in such a way, “so that everyone can draw own conclusions without being influenced by any media sensation, government propaganda, or nuclear lobbyists who are trying to play down the effects of the disaster, and pass on the information obtained to as wider a public as possible.”
Now more than 120 thousand people are still unable to return to their homes, many people live in temporary shelters built by the Japanese government. The exclusion zone only on cleaning the soil constantly employs about 20 thousand people. The walls and roofs of houses disinfected with a special liquid. The government promises to clean up the radioactive debris from the area not later than 30 years. But there are fears that if the residents are able to return to their homes, because there are forests, mountains and uninhabited areas with radioactive isotopes that may fly around the neighborhood.
