Although many gifted writers can beautifully articulate the impact of certain tragedies with words, nothing can compare to the haunting and thorough photos captured at Chernobyl, both before, during, and the years after. I absolutely am captivated by the photos and appreciate the size and breadth of their coverage in this book. The text does an excellent job outlining the specifics, but nothing conveys the haunting nature of this famous landmark and disaster like photos. It is a dream of mine (I explore abandoned places) to one day visit and photograph the site myself, (although, currently due to Russia/Ukraine I know that dream is even farther away). This book went far beyond my expectation both as a writer, photographer, and appreciator of history and abandoned spaces.
The history of the most lethal and infamous nuclear accident of Chernobyl are etched into the every page of the book. Detailed and comprehensive, it brings all the information and paint the picture of what was before the accident, what the accident looked like and it's effect and aftermath. A powerful book enriched with history and thorough facts.
