About this product
- DescriptionSince 2008, photographer Andrej Krementschouk took several trips to Cherbyl, venturing into the restricted area around the reactor. While the hardcover volume Cherbyl Zone (I) shows pictures he took of the rural landscape, this softcover volume presents his photographs of the deserted urban zone, as well as historic images from the area. The pictures of Prypiat, evacuated on 27 April 1986, show a ghost town where nature is reclaiming the cityscape, leaving the traces of human habitation to gradually disappear.
