Leica & Magnum: “The Awakening” by Dominic Nahr

Leica & Magnum: Awakening by Dominic Nahr from leica camera on Vimeo.

In our latest photo essay created in partnership with Magnum Photos, we follow Dominic Nahr into the 20km zone surrounding the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, Japan. Nahr documents the damage that resulted from the plant's breakdown.

We first came across the work of Dominic Nahr when he won the Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award in 2009 (http://bit.ly/OBNA09). It came as no surprise that he joined Magnum Photos as a nominee in July 2010. Nahr also spoke at our recent event in Paris with Magnum Photos to discuss "Crises and catastrophes in pictures. What justifiable role can photojournalism play in an age of camera phones, Twitter and Facebook?" His portfolio is on the Magnum Photos site: http://bit.ly/DominicNahr

    A great amount of splendid shots in this “reportage”. Perfectly framed, fascinating mood and dramatic subjects shown with a lot of artistic talent. Thanks for the link!
