A couple of years ago, I noted a photo essay that explored the “ghost town” that is now Chernobyl, Ukraine. It is a haunting, disturbing essay, and should be revisited today, the 20th anniversary of the disaster.
Even more disturbing, is this photo essay that chronicles victims of the accident. It is difficult to watch because it involves the people who were affected, and remain scarred by the disaster. Nevertheless, it is one of those things that we should see, lest we become too comfortable, too removed.
