Tourisme nucléaire : mes photos de vacances… à Tchernobyl ! | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

Quand on est un peu imprudent, il arrive que l’on revienne irradié de nos vacances. Par les rayons du soleil ? Pas forcément. Certains ont décidé de se tester aux radiations nucléaires et de s’organiser des vacances à Tchernobyl. Entre développer un cancer en s’oubliant trop souvent sur la plage et assouvir un désir irrépressible de prendre des photos HDR d’une centrale à l’abandon, pour certains touristes, le choix est fait.

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 23, 1:42 AM

"McLaughlin's photographs capture both the traditions and the change of the first decade of the 21st century. Using a medium format camera with traditional film negatives, she pursues the mission of a documentary photographer by preserving a piece of fading history."

Tara Goldsmith's curator insight, June 23, 6:00 AM

Traditions is good!

Mario Pires's curator insight, May 2, 1:24 AM

"So another question: Is the platform best left to the amateurs, to enjoy filter-enhanced sunsets, rainbows, street scenes, lovers, pets and families or is this really the new, professional platform of the future?

Last question: Would you “like” a picture of malnourished babies in Myanmar?"
