Slide Show: Otsuchi, Japan, Three Years After the Tsunami Three years ago this week, Japan was ravaged by a 9.0 earthquake, the largest on record in the country’s history. The earthquake, centered under the seabed off Japan’s eastern coast, lasted for five minutes and launched a tsunami that was, in places, nearly thirty feet tall. The waves overtopped a seawall in Otsuchi, a small beach community near the northern tip of Honshu, Japan’s main island, flattening much of the town and causing its residents to seek refuge among the cemeteries in the nearby hills. Some sixteen hundred of the more than fifteen thousand people who died in the earthquake and tsunami were residents of Otsuchi, about ten per cent of the town’s population. The president of Japan’s Red Cross, who visited the town a few days after the earthquake, said at the time, “Everything is destroyed and flattened. This is a complete disaster.

So it Goes I was seventeen when I first came across the work of Bruce Davidson. I had inherited my father’s weather-beaten Leica M6 and possessed all but a passing interest in photography. Accustomed as I already was to the immediacy of digital photography, I spent close to a year getting to grips with the rigours of 35mm rangefinder cameras.

40 Movies About Photography Every Photographer Should Watch – Resource Magazine Film making and photography go hand-in-hand. In film making, the art of cinematography is lost with photography.

Documentary Photography in the Age of Anxiety: Fred Ritchin’s “Bending the Frame” We live in a period of anxiety, a time of deep uncertainty about the foundations and frameworks through which we make sense of life. It may have always been like this, but various faiths and philosophies work to convince us that there are guideposts and touch points around which we can orient our purpose and values. The philosopher Richard J. Bernstein, in his seminal 1983 book Beyond Objectivism and Relativism, coined the term “Cartesian Anxiety” for the generalised belief that we have lost even the pretence of secure reference points. As Bernstein argues (p. 19), we face “the growing apprehension that there may be nothing – not God, reason, philosophy, science, or poetry…that answers to and satisfies our longing for ultimate constraints, for a stable and reliable rock upon which we can secure our thought and action.”
