When nature strikes back in Chernobyl

In this photo serie I try to take a photo in exactly the same position as the photographer stood before the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl (1986). You see how mercilessly nature struck back. Apartment buildings are overgrown by trees and shrubs, traffic lights are covered by trees, busy streets are now as narrow as a sidewalk. You have to look very closely to see a point of recognition. We succeeded. You too ? Have fun ! 🙂

  1. Hallo Ran,
    Ik kwam op facebook jou site tegen en bij deze zou ik graag een volledige brochure willen aanvragen van de reis die je aanbiedt naar Tschernobyl.
    Met vriendelijke groet,
