These photos of Fukishima were captured by photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski, over four years after the nuclear disaster that took place in the Japanese town more than four years ago. These fascinating photos offer an amazing glimpse into a place that was changed forever.

Podniesinski has previously taken a lot of photos at Chernobyl, another site of a nuclear disaster. This time, he decided to visit Japan because he wanted to examine and photographically capture the various similarities and differences between the two disaster sites. In addition to their superficial appearance, the photographer also wanted to understand differences in their evacuation procedures, clean-up protocols and so on.

This photo series shows how nuclear disasters can pause life in a sense, what with some of the photos showing fully stocked supermarkets and untouched homes.
