Born and raised by the seashore, the photographer observed the coastline that transformed along with Japan's rapid post-war economic growth. He captures, quite serenely, the nuclear power plants that appeared on the coasts of Japan and the transfiguration of countryside that came with it. Are we to live forever with this edifice of convenience, or have we taken into hands something ungovernable? One thing for certain is that human beings and nuclear energy have become inseparable, and that we enjoy its benefit at all times. As if a specimen, the power plants are labeled by the date they were photographed. These plants are to be dismantled in over 40 years. This, nonetheless, is a typical scenery of modern Japan.
