Welcome to Pripyat

Apr 12, 2012 • 6 comments • 4824 views

The ghost town of Pripyat, Ukraine as seen from the city's derelict hotel. Pripyat was evacuated shortly after the explosion of Reactor 4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in 1986.

Abandoned Decay



Like the subdued color scheme here and the focal point is great - specifically how that ramp on the right guides the viewer to the center.

Did you have to take one of those special guided tours to get to Pripyat? I hear, it's quite a business to give tours around the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant. Wonder, when the Fukushima tours will start.

Lingering horror

So desolate. Very haunting. The emotional content to the disaster is very pure here.
On an artistic and presentation level- the colour and atmosphere used is brilliant.
