Extract of catalogue reads:
“It was a cold but sunny day. Wind was strong, “as always" a local old man we met told us, a retired worker from the Power Plant, who’s great grand father was buried in the local church. He was very happy to see us, perhaps mistaking us for the pilgrims, who came to pay homage to his Power Station. Through the strong wind, I heard a whistles of a chew-chew train, perhaps full of families with excited children, heading towards Power Station.
I grieve for the loss of naiveté, but the way back to the innocence is now closed for me after Fukushima. By burning images on paper, I am asking what this all means? “
