Legacy: Inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

    1 / 36

1998

Images produced within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, a 30 kilometer radius no-entry area that was evacuated after the nuclear meltdown at the Chernobyl Power Plant in 1986. The area contained one major city, Pripyat, over seventy villages and scores of farms. The people living in these locations were given twenty four hours to gather their possessions and were then moved to locations around the Ukraine, in most cases never to return.
