In 1995 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 struck the city of Kobe and its vicinity. Ryuji Miyamoto's photographs show Kobe as it was just after the earthquake - buildings suspended in time before being demolished are visibly straining, buckled and warped. On view from March 9th, 2010 at Amador Gallery in New York's midtown.
