Last month, artist, surfer and all-around great guy Ty Williams was asked to travel to Fukushima to paint fish on the boats of fishermen who lost everything in the devastating tsunami.  The project was both a gesture of good will (fish are symbol of good luck) and a way of hearing and acknowledging the fishermen’s painful stories.  Read Williams’s thoughts on his experience in Japan here—and see his beautiful photos from the trip.
