This book contains information along with the great photos of the existing land. I have been reading up on Chernobyl lately, and have purchased 4 books on the subject. I really enjoyed the photos in this book. If you are looking for detailed information, this may not be the book for you.

It seems that Chernobyl has fallen off the radar scope for us all. When you look at the pictures in this book you can see much of the devastation that it left behind. It also reminds me of the human devastation that is still to come.

It started with an old ragged VHS copy of the devestation from the Chernobyl NPP..I read books and articles, and wrote a One Act Play simply called "CHERNOBYL'. This last book CHERNOBYL The Hidden legacy by Piepaolo Mitica didn't show me the already famous photos of the crippled whats-left-of-the-power plant...I saw photos of incredible ruins of the country-side, the vacant look of the helpless victims, the hollow stare into thier nothing future of the innocent dying children. Radiation is invisible, and all I saw was the incredible stillness and emptyness of the now contaminated land. It is mind boggling.....Teri

This book is not a firsthand account of Chernobyl disaster as-it-was-unfolding per sé, such as Chernobyl: Confessions of a Reporter or Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster, but it's equally good if all you would like to do is see how an abandoned place looks like, from an artist's perspective. If you're, however looking for something more blunt and more written material than photos, this is not for you. The book, however, contains a couple of maps and short resumes of various aspects of the disaster.
