Jumping from one plant to another in search of food and new habitats, fleeing from predators, the inhabitants of the crowns had to travel considerable distances through the air. In the course of evolution, some species have developed special changes in gliding and flapping flight. The main invention of gliding animals – the flying membrane – allowed them not only to control the range and speed, but also to change the direction of movement during the flight, ”said Elena Baranova, head of the museum’s external scientific communications department.

By that time, he had been working in the field of commercial and magazine photography for over 20 years. What he saw in Fukushima changed his life forever.

“I witnessed many people praying towards the sea, which took many lives. And that inspired me to start the Prayer Border project. I cannot restore the lives of survivors or injured people. But I can throw a small stone into the water to make circles. My stone is a project. I try to convey the hidden energy of prayer in my photographs, ”says Shigeru Yoshida.

The photographer increased the shutter speed of the camera to one minute, which corresponds to the duration of the prayer of the residents of Fukushima. For 10 years he has been visiting the coast, observing the changes in people’s lives, continuing his project.
