On February 3, Darrell Miho, Sansei photojournalist and co-founder of Ai Love Japan, will be at JAMsj to talk about his experiences and discuss some of the current issues and needs in the areas hit by disaster in northeast Japan almost two years ago. Miho has made five trips to Japan to document the aftermath of the March 11 disaster that devastated the Tohoku region. This is a rare opportunity to see a photojournalist's labor of love and hear about his first-hand experiences.

Photos and videos about the survivors and the current situation will be shown, followed by a Q&A session. Light refreshments will be served.

Ai Love Japan uses earthquake and tsunami survivor stories to increase public awareness about how people were affected and what they are doing to rebuild their lives. Its goal is to keep people aware of the ongoing situation in the disaster area in hopes of encouraging volunteers to raise additional funds and go help people in the hardest-hit areas in the Fukushima, Iwate, and Miyagi Prefectures.

Read Darrell Miho's personal story about how he got involved in relief efforts on the JAMsj blog.

Additional information about Ai Love Japan can be found on its website: http://ailovejapan.org.

Cost: Free with admission to the museum (non-members, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free)

Seating is limited, so please email PublicPrograms@JAMsj.org or call the JAMsj office at (408) 294-3138 to reserve your spot today.
