Much area around Japan’s Fukushima Daichi Nuclear Power Station has been closed to the public following the disaster that struck the region over five years ago. The earthquake and subsequent tsunami of March 11, 2011 caused a meltdown at the plant, and some 170,000 people were evacuated immediately.
Keow Wee Loong, a Malaysian photographer currently based in Thailand, snuck into the zone with his fiancee to document the current state of Fukushima’s the long abandoned towns and what was left behind.
Without proper protection against radiation and risking his life to documentary the abandoned Fukushima’s town. Let’s pray for him!
On internet and social media, many comments and critics on his action. What do you think of his action?
