At age 19, Nicolas Orzio was given a rare opportunity and a great responsiblility to document the World War II recovery efforts throughout Japan during the United States Occupation. Given a camera, jeep, drivevr, and a pass signed by General Douglas MacArthur, Orzio set out for two years on his mission. The images Orzio captured in 1948 and 1949 describe in incredible detail not only the physical recover and struggle of japanese peole, but also a glimpse into the moods and emotions of men, women, and the children. Sadly, Orzio has passed on February 5, 2016.
