Chernobyl, Hidden From View

Entry Description

On April 26, 1986 Chernobyl was the worst man made disaster in history, releasing massive amounts of radioactive material into the environment. Chernobyl: Hidden From View explores the contemporary landscape of the exclusion zone. These images are a story of nature in an unnatural place, of loss and renewal and of things hidden from view. While some scars on the land show their mark, most remain concealed, shadowing the dangers of what nature holds within. Although these landscapes appear green and lush with vegetation, every living creature is saturated with radioactivity, quietly denying their deadliness.
