Publisher's presentation :
"My brother died in a car accident in 1999. His last girlfriend, Kaori, was Japanese.
She kept on writing and sending photos for months after the accident.
The search for Kaori led me to Fukushima and the tsunami area, working as a pretext
to look for stories of loss and reconstruction across Japan.
-- Vittorio Mortarotti

The book itself is very beautiful assembled. The printing and layout are especially strong.
