This photobook App takes You on a fascinating visual journey into the exclusion zone around the Reactor Block no 4 of Chernobyl that was destroyed by the nuclear disaster in 1986 and contaminated a huge area.
"Chernobyl 1986" guides You to the abandoned city of Pripyat near the power plant. A city with 50'000 inhabitants once, turned, after its hastily evacuation, into a huge ghost-town, left to its own, relentless decay.
You will encounter portraits of people who were evacuated from their homes, but decided despite the legal ban, to return into the exclusion zone and live there a humble life and work as simple farmers.
With the photo book app "Chernobyl 1986" you not only embark on an unique and adventurous visual journey, You are also witnessing a new way of publishing photography.
This application is really well done. Although they are essentially vacation photos, the photography is great and the app is put together well. It's powerful to see these towns decay during this modern time. Worth the price.
Very haunting and moving photos. I have a real interest in visiting this area, and these pictures and the short commentaries that accompany some of them are fascinating.
