Report from Iitate: The cattle 2

Mr. Hasegawa has been a leader of the cattle farmers in Iitate, Fukushima, and his cattle was taken away this morning, reports a photojournalist Takashi Morizumi.

Right after the nuclear disaster, Mr. Hasegawa has bought a camcorder to document what’s been happening to his village and to keep a record of his cows. For the cattle farmer, they are like his own children.

The photojournalist asks himself why he is taking this kind of pictures all the time.
