© Shinsuke Minegishi, 2013

During his visit to Japan, after an immense earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011, Minegishi witnessed the disorder and chaos in this urbanized system and realized just how fragile and vulnerable human civilization could be. It was terrifying to recognize that a nation, which took thousands of years to develop, and the security people felt on a daily basis could be destroyed in a fraction of time.

At the same time, Minegishi observed man's determination to survive and the willpower needed to rise from unthinkable disaster. He examined people realizing the importance of social groups, including families, and witnessed Japan as a whole becoming closer and tighter.

The experience and observation in 2011 led Minegishi to create a series called fragility and resurrection.
