"After the Water Receded documents and commemorates the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown which struck northern Japan March 11, 2011. Artist Naoto Nakagawa exhibits 1,000 Portraits of Hope; drawings of survivors, and Magdalena Solé exhibits color photographs taken after the disasters, some within the 12-mile radius around the nuclear power plant. Together, the work of these two artists forms a visual narrative that provides some of the untold stories of this disaster and the rebuilding of Fukushima prefecture."
