Les plus de 80 000 habitants Ă©vacuĂ©s des alentours de la centrale nuclĂ©aire de Fukushima ont tous un jour eu cette tentation : revenir voir leur maison, leur Ă©cole ou leur commerce. Et tous ont eu du mal Ă reconnaĂ®tre ces lieux familiers devenus hostiles. Les annĂ©es d'absence, les rongeurs mais aussi les effets du sĂ©isme et du tsunami du 11 mars ont laissĂ© des traces.
Almost all of the 80,000 nuclear refugees forced to evacuate areas near the Fukushima Daiichi plant have at times felt compelled to return to their homes, schools and businesses. When they did, they struggled to recognize places that had once been so familiar to them. Damage from earthquake and tsunami of March 2011, years of absence and the arrival of rodents have rendered the buildings practically unrecognizable. We asked former residents or inhabitant from the Fukushima region, and in some cases, the actual owners of certain properties, to join us inside the no-go zone and open the doors to these ordinary, but now unfriendly, places. Facing the camera, they were asked to act as normally as possible ? as if nothing had happened. The idea behind these almost surreal photographs was to combine the banal and the unusual. The fact of the historical nuclear accident gives these images a real plausibility.
