The 3/11 Tsunami Photo Project is a new app featuring the work of fourteen photographers who documented the tragic aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The .99 app, published by Kodansha, is an innovative fundraiser as well – all proceeds from the project go to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

Seven photographers – TIME contract photographer Dominic Nahr, James Whitlow Delano, Jean Chung, Adam Dean, Keith Bedford, Paula Bronstein and Shiho Fukada – donated their work to the project, curated by Yumi Goto.

Images from seven more photographers, including David Guttenfelder, Pieter Ten HoopenJake Price, Giulio Di Sturco, Ko Sasaki, Guillem Valle and Ryo Kameyama, were added to the app in an update released in late April.

In addition to biographies of the contributors, there is a brief audio message to the people of Japan from each photographer. James Whitlow Delano, who is based in Tokyo, said, “I saw order where there was chaos, but most of all I saw hope.”
