Never-seen-before shots of Chernobyl nuclear disaster that cost two of the four photographers their lives

Never-seen-before shots of Chernobyl nuclear disaster that cost two of the four photographers their lives | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

These are the haunting images that captured the true scale of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The black and white shots, taken in the weeks following the 1986 Ukraine tragedy, revealed the truth behind the tragedy Soviet authorities were trying to hush up. But despite helping the outside world to understand what happened that fateful April 26 day, the pictures have had a devastating human cost. Of the four photographers chronicling the tragedy, Anatoly Rasskazov and Valery Zufarov have died from radiation-related diseases and Igor Kostin is constantly ill from the exposure.
