Chernobyl: The Aftermath of Wormwood Part 2

Chernobyl: The Aftermath of Wormwood Part 2.

The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophes.

Trees, Chernobyl, 2013.

The area surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear power plant is a radioactive wilderness, a toxic legacy, and a tragic reminder of the dark side of nuclear power.

Today, the raw power of nature meets our technical arrogance and is destroying our cities and our environments. This unimaginable power that unleashes terrifying quantities of radiation, hardly bears thinking about.  But we must think about it.

I enjoy exploring concepts of personal artistic expression, which are supported by experimenting with different techniques and processes. These two images are from earlier projects in the year, both taken with Kodak Ektachrome.
