Workers sort debris in Kesennuma, Japan a year after a tsunami destroyed much of the city. The area's main industry, fishing, was gutted, so many local fishermen have taken jobs sorting through the mountains of rubble that remain. The garbage is sorted into seven kinds of material, and sent for recycling or burial.
