Coastal Mammoth: The Great Seawall Of Japan

The Japanese Government has been building 400 kms of seawalls in the Northeastern region, after the 2011 tsunami. Questions however, have been raised whether it will fend off future tsunami effectively.

This body of work taken between 2016 and 2019 is both photographic documentation and a study of the relationship between a newly formed structure and its surrounding environment.
