Chernobyl 25 years on

26 Apr

The abandoned cites effected by Chernobyl both fascinate & terrify me, feeding directly into my obsession with abandoned and derelict sties. 25 years on they city once home to 350,000 people still stands alone and I can’t seem to shake off a compulsion to visit them, the chance to literally having a city to yourself a reality; an unhealthy reality be it all the same. Time have published an essay around this very issue, and collated a series of images inside the radioactive zone which are both moving & at times very surreal. You can also view a larger gallery of 50 images over at Buzzfeed.
