Empty streets, abandoned schools, supermarkets and destroyed houses.

The haunting pictures taken by Polish photographer Natalia Supanska show buildings in towns near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Japan's east coast, eight years after it suffered catastrophic landslides that forced people to flee for their lives.

An earthquake of magnitude 9.0 and a tsunami in March 2011 caused the collapse of three of the plant's six reactors, emitting nuclear radiation into the air, soil and oceans, forcing 160,000 people living close to fleeing.
