Inside Fukushima's Exclusion Zone

"The silence and the stillness were something I've only ever heard in Chernobyl." -- Donald Weber, photographer

Weber is an experienced hand at photographing what he called "wastelands" because he'd documented the Chernobyl exclusion zone in the Ukraine. VBS, Vice magazine's video wing, caught up with Weber, and put together this excellent video. The photos of abandoned apartments are haunting.
