Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 2008 Andrej Krementschouk ventured several times into the restricted area around the Chernobyl reactor. This volume presents his photographs of the deserted urban zone of Prypiat, evacuated on April 27, 1986. They show a ghost town where nature is reclaiming the cityscape and the traces of human habitation gradually disappear.

Synopsis:

Second volume of Krementschouk's disturbing photoseries from the restricted area around the Chernobyl reactor
