In the aftermath of the tsunami all that remained of people’s lives was either washed away or left rotting in the destruction. After the emergency response ended volunteers and the self defense forces shifted attention to the precious things that were left of people's lives. Millions of photos were salvaged, collected and, one by one, cleaned and left for the living to find again.

These photos and video were originally released on World Press Photo awarded Unknown Spring.
