After his first long-term photo project in France, Masamichi returned to Japan in July of 2011 and started looking for a way to visualize radiation using contaminated samples from the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. He found Satoshi Mori Professor emeritus, the University of Tokyo, who was capturing images of radioactive contamination from plants after the nuclear accident. Masamichi started a second photo project “Autoradiograph” with the cooperation of Professor Satoshi Mori. Masamichi and Professor Mori have captured more than 300 images in the past five years and published a book “Autoradiograph” in Japan (2015). More than 25 exhibitions of their work have been held in Japan, Canada, France, UK, China, Ukraine and Netherlands. Their work has appeared in more than 15 newspapers and magazines in Japan and abroad, including "Libération" and “Le Monde” in France, “de Volkskrant” in Netherlands “GEO magazine” in Germany and “Asashi Shimbun” in Japan. Their work has also appeared on Reuter TV, Nippon TV News, and in the NHK documentary "Radioactive Forest (2016 and 2018)" which won the National Arts Festival Award in 2016. Masamichi developed a 3D autoradiograph at the end of 2016 and his technique can be applied to a wide range of samples. The photo project “Autoradiograph” is still in progress. “Autoradiograph” is not only a collection of visual records of the nuclear disaster but also shows the media and scientists over the world a new way to present and analyze radioactive contamination.
