The Lost & Found Project began as "Salvage Memory," a project to recover photographs swept away by the Great Eastern Japan Tsunami on March 11, 2011 and return them to their owners.
Many of the photographs that were found were able to be returned to their families, there were also those which were too badly damaged to be returned. Munemasa Takahashi, a photographer, and Kazuto Hoshi, a resident of Yamamoto, were both involved in "Salvage Memory" and decided to exhibit these damaged photos which would otherwise have been thrown out.
The exhibition they put together has traveled around the world and raised money to help support people in temporary housing and purchase supplies for damaged schools. For more information, please visit http://lostandfound311.jp/en/
PSPINC will have our copy of the book available to view in our lobby.
