Unmeasurable Sole   (2012), is a series of photographs Ono produced after experiencing the aftermath of the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan in 2011. It is an untold story of a crime committed against a girl by a man. A story in which the media and the society discouraged to tell. Ono had photographed the disaster area in Fukushima and he had made the decision not to show them to the public. 'Often, I found the intentions of the photographers I met very ambiguous. I had also thrown the same question to myself.  Many people used the suffering of the others to sell their names,' Ono has said.
