Regarding Rob Gilhooly’s March 27 article, “Survivors strive to start picking up the pieces“: I wish I had been introduced to Gilhooly’s work before the disaster in Japan. I have been very impressed by his photographs, but this is my first glimpse at his “journalist” side.

I have been reading everything I could find since the earthquake-tsunami. I have felt sad, angry, hopeful, frustrated, helpless. I never expected, four weeks later, that I would feel the depth of emotion I did after reading this report. Just as he captures a moment in time with his photos, he has captured a piece of humanity in this story.

The opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are the writer’s own and do not necessarily reflect the policies of The Japan Times.
