Every 12 months, approximately a hundred thousand jap vanish with out a hint. often called the johatsu, or the “evaporated,” they can be pushed through disgrace and hopelessness, abandoning misplaced jobs, disillusioned households, and mounting money owed. In The Vanished, journalist Léna Mauger and photographer Stéphane Remael discover the human faces in the back of the phenomenon via reportage, images, and interviews with those that left, those that stayed at the back of, and those that aid orchestrate the disappearances. Their quest to profit the tales of the johatsu weaves its means through:

A Tokyo local so infamous for its petty legal actions that it was once actually erased from the maps
Reprogramming camps for subpar bureaucrats and businessmen to turn into “better” employees
The charmless fortress of Toyota urban, with its iron grip on its employees
The “suicide” cliffs of Tojinbo, patrolled through a guy struggling with to avoid wasting the desperate
The desolation of Fukushima within the aftermath of the tsunami

And but, as unique and international as their tales may well seem to an outsider’s eyes, the human event shared through the interviewees continues to be powerfully universal.
