"Regeneration" and 921 Jiji Earthquake Community Reconstruction Photographic Exhibition
The 10th annual retrospect of the 921 Jiji Earthquake
Epicentre: 23.85°N 120.82°E


An unprecedentedly heaviest earthquake in the past century shattered Taiwan at 1:47 a.m. on September 21st, 1999.

The epicentre was in Jiji in Nantou county in central Taiwan with a hypocentre of 8 KM in depth, registering 7.3 on the Richter Magnitude scale.

The intense quake which lasted up to 102 seconds resulted in the dislocation of the Chelongpu Fault with a surface-faulting up to 80 KM in length, 2,455 deaths, and the whole-collapse of 50,652 houses.

The whole nation has thus begun the largest scale of "action of love" in history fully demonstrating the amazing vitality of the Taiwanese.

We witness the regeneration of the people and the land. —from the waste land(1922) by T. S. Eliot

震央:23.85°N 120.82°E


1999年9月21日、午前1時47分の深夜に、台湾では震度M7.3に至った、百年間で最大規模の地震が発生した。

震央は中部の南投県集集鎮に位置し、震源の深さは8kmである。

102秒も続いた強烈な震動はチェルンプ断層の変位を起こし、地表に長さ80kmに至った割れ目を残した。

これによって2,455人の命が奪われ、そして50,652件の建物が全壊した。台湾人は大規模な救援「愛の行動」を行い、復興再建まで驚くべきの生命力を見せた。

この土地とともに、廃墟から、人は新生した。
