Years later, the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster remains a post-apocalyptic landscape of empty houses, massive health risks, and 20,000 workers moving bags of lethal soil from one heedless spot to another. Polish photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski gathered his courage and hazmat suit to searingly document a catastrophe he blames not on earthquake, tsunami or technology, but humans - "an immense experience, not comparable to anything else (where) only the wind answers."
"I had braced myself that we might not get a clean victory, but this is too awful."
"We will be doomed if we allow another nuclear accident to occur."
"Another reason to not build nuclear power plants."
