President's Message

Dear members,

Mindfulness is a necessity in the face of grinding layoffs and publication closures across the journalism industry. The words “stunned” and “historic” appeared in coverage of a slew of bad media news stories earlier this month, including the closure of Sports Illustrated magazine and the Los Angeles Times’ decision to lay off 20% of its workforce. Business Insider, Forbes and National Geographic have piled on the misery, shedding journalists and retrenching in recent weeks.

On March 11, 2011, at 2:46 p.m., a powerful earthquake struck off northeast Japan’s main island. Less than an hour later, tsunami inundated the coast and surged inland. By the time the raging waves receded, more than 18,000 people had died.

In the weeks after the disaster, Los Angeles-based photographer Mark Edward Harris made his way to the eastern Tohoku impact zone. There he began documenting the disaster and the region’s determination to rise out of the rubble. While the lives lost on March 11, 2011, will never be replaced, Harris’s images show how the people of eastern Tohoku are rebuilding their towns and cities to safer standards as well as memorializing and interpreting that horrific spring day through state-of-the-art museums to educate future generations.
