Concept

The photographs of the baptism in the Jordan River in Israel were taken in June, 2009.
However, all the films were irradiated with X-rays at the time of an immigration examination.
An unpleasant wavelike pattern was reflected to the photographs under the influence of X-rays.
The Great East Japan Earthquake happened in two years later.
Radioactivity began to leak from the nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture where I live.
"Fear to the radioactivity which is not visible" – the radius of safe zone on the map reminded me these photographs irradiated with X-rays, which are also invisible.
I decided to put the photographs on view to pray that all people can go back their own home.
