Highly recommended for picture lovers and people who are interested in the Chernobyl disaster and its impact on the environment and peoples lives.
Written by one of the first to reach the site of the accident and to photograph it, this guys has guts that most of us only can imagine and dream we may act in such a heroic way.
The photo's are astonishing especially the one looking directly down into the open roof of the reactor.
I highly recommend this photo essay to anyone interested in the Chernobyl incident.
The problem I've discovered with Chernobyl is that it doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves. While the accident is always referenced as the "worst nuclear disaster in history", the event, 25 years later, still remains clouded in mystery and for many in the Western Hemisphere, it sadly doesn't even register as a significant event (just ask any college kid). Making matters worse, there is very little photographic evidence to paint a clearer picture of the event and its aftermath (other than the exploitation and exaggeration of Chernobyl by video game developers).Read more ›
I read the entire book in one night! What a brave and intriguing man, Igor Kostin is!
Great photographs and brief summaries between chapters of what happened.
Must get to keep on your shelf.
