Alex Cheban :

Pripyat, en Ukraine.

Il y a 25 ans, le 26 avril 1986 s'est produite la plus grande catastrophe dans l'histoire, l'accident d'une centrale nucléaire.
Il y a 25 ans, a cessé d'exister une ville jeune et prospère de l'URSS - Pripyat.
Mais sa vie se poursuit aujourd'hui sous d'autres formes ... sous forme de parcelles intéressantes et inattendues, des graffitis sur les rues d'une ville fantôme.

Chernobyl disaster 25th anniversary

Chernobyl disaster 25th anniversary | Epic pics | Scoop.it
On April 26, 1986, reactor number four at the Chernobyl nuclear power facility in what is now Ukraine exploded. The largest civil nuclear disaster in history led to mass evacuations, and long-term health, agricultural, and economic distress. The nearby city of Pripyat has been abandoned, and a 19-mile radius "exclusion zone" established where radiation contamination makes continued habitation dangerous. Collected here are archival pictures of the catastrophe, as well as more recent images of the area. In addition, two photographers who've made extensive studies of the aftermath have been gracious enough to share their work with us here. Diana Markosian documented the lives of pensioners Lida and Mikhail Masanovitz, who continue to live in the abandoned ghost town of Redkovka, Ukraine. Her work is found here in photographs 13 through 16. Michael Forster Rothbart has produced one of the most extensive records available of life near Chernobyl. His work is found here in photographs 23 through 29. Links to the websites of both photographers can be found below
