For Japan 2011
After the tsunami and earthquake which devastated Japan in March 2011, Architecture for Humanity set up a project office in Sendai to develop long term reconstruction projects. In London we raised funds to support their work with the 'For Japan' photography exhibition hosted by Hotshoe Gallery in Clerkenwell. We exhibited 100 photographs, all evoking Japanese culture, submitted by photographers from all over the world. We auctioned these and raised circa £7,000. The first AfH project to be completed in Japan was constructing a community market place in Hikado, a small fishing village in the Tohoku region which was completed washed away by the tsunami.
