I was up in Sendai three days after the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, and shot these photographs at Koriyama Junior High School, which was being used as an refugee center. The center had been used by around 600 people in the three days since the quake, with many people returning to their homes during the day to try to clean up and repair earthquake damage. Food was very short when I was there, as the authorities had not yet managed to establish a reliable logistics chain to provide even the essentials to refugee centers. "Milk soup", referenced above, is simply warm milk.
