Shocking footage captured by one man clinging on for his life. The ferocity of the 2005 Tsunami ruined thousands of lives, the devastating scenes of what was left behind is shown here by local man Hashim.

Perched high on the Grand Mosque in Aceh, a man stood clinging on with camera in hand. A wedding photographer by profession, he risked his life so "a broken piece of home, a car" destroyed by the torrents, might not be lost forever. Today like thousands of other Indonesians, he has no home and "no money to start again". Life "is impossible" with his family cramped into one house. Yet, he is determined to be positive. For him the Tsunami was a sign from God "to open the eyes of all people to see his power, like in my pictures". Those that witnessed events of last year "have to believe in God now."
