Civilization Swallowed by Nature: Eerie Images Reveal How The Fukushima Exclusion Zone Looks Like Now

Arkadiusz Podniesinski,  a Polish photographer,  visited the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster to capture the haunting mementos of the radioactive wreckage.

The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster triggered by “The Great East Earthquake” and tsunami in 2011 was the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

When the photographer last month obtained the permit to enter the 12.5-mile exclusion zone around the nuclear plant, he eye-witnessed a real-life post-apocalyptic scene.

Podniesinski said: “When I entered the exclusion zone, the first thing I noticed was the huge scale of decontamination work. This was a way of drawing my own conclusions without being influenced by any media sensation, government propaganda, or nuclear lobbyists who are trying to play down the effects of the disaster.”

It is not earthquakes or tsunami that are to blame for the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, but humans,” writes Podniesinski on his website.
