Bangkok-based photographer Damir Sagolj “What fascinates me is the way ordinary Japanese are reacting to this catastrophe. After all the tragedies I have covered in my career, I must say that this one is very special: no looting, no fight for food, fuel or place in shelters (though they need them, it is cold and they are hungry). They wait in lines that are kilometres long for fuel as if they are on a promenade and will chat with others while waiting for ice cream. I panic when my vehicle has only half of tank! The other day in one of the shelters a woman returned a piece of clothing she received earlier from aid workers. The jacket was too big for her daughter and she folded it back and returned to the distribution centre. She could have kept it and maybe sell or exchange it for something else she needs. But, not in Japan; it’s fascinating, the order and discipline of people experiencing the worst days of their lives. There are no tears and no screaming in front of our lenses, just a silent grief. I don't know where this calmness comes from. What in their culture or history makes them so special? I don't even know is it good or bad. Can they really process all the sorrow without venting it with tears? I'm so impressed by their behavior and power to stay cool in such a situation that it feels really stupid to write how cold I was sleeping outside while covering this story. Or to talk about whatever happens or will happen while here, before boarding planes to take us back to the comfort of our homes.”

Tokyo-based photographer Yuriko Nakao: “This, the first earthquake that I covered, turned out to be the most massive and destructive one. What is most difficult is imagining the feelings of the people who have survived this tragedy and those who lost their lives. Behind all the mounds of rubble, disastrous scenes and smoke billowing from nuclear power plants, there are people who lost their house, their loved ones, their job, hopes and on top of that have fears of nuclear radiation: which could possibly affect their health and contaminate their land. The sorrow and their fears for their destiny are unimaginable. Imagining what I would feel if a photographer snapped pictures of me, if I was in their shoes, it made it extremely difficult to press the shutter. When I saw people packed in a gymnasium of a high school in Kawamatacho, Fukushima, some lying on blankets, some spacing out, some talking with their neighbors, I didn't know where to start. So, I started to talk to the evacuees. Surprisingly, everyone was kind and caring. Nineteen-year old Narumi even offered me a portion of their very limited amount of snacks, though I insisted I was not hungry. One woman in her early 30's gave me a very bright smile telling me please report this to the rest of the world. She added "We lost everything. So we might as well be humorous and smile even though we are as sad as we can be." We looked alike and became friends right away. We joked that we smelled the same, giggling as we pointed to each other’s socks, since neither of us had showered for the last 4 days or so. We hugged and in the end, she wished for my safety. At the same time, there are so many with sad stories which cannot be told without tears. I hope to report on the tragedy without making the people feel uneasy or disturbed and spread the reality as much as possible. I hope that people all over the world would offer us a hand, time, money and prayers."
