I traveled to Japan three times in 2011 to shoot the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami. My initial efforts to get to the disaster area were a failure. In a last chance act of desperation I called a friend living in Sendai who happens to be a former member of a notorious outlaw biker gang. Due to his vouching for me, several motorcycle clubs that organized a grassroots relief effort allowed me to join them. I was only able to take these photos thanks to their kindness and sense of brotherhood.
