Editorial Reviews


Elizabeth Konkel
5/5 "...The photos track Seo's journey from entrance to exit, looking at daily life, the visitor area, and even at the food. Seo uses a conversational tone through segments of commentary made throughout to describe location to location, which effectively makes you feel like apart of the journey and weaves in a lightness derived from a variety of humorous moments throughout the journey. It is significant how well Seo chooses photos that define the past while giving a chance for the future."
Seattle Book Review

J. Aislynn d'Merricksson
5/5 "...Many of the pictures show a slice of life, frozen in time. These people, they left thinking they'd be able to return soon. Books lay on school desks, hospital tools and records lay on counters. The eeriest pictures in this book, to me at least, are of the abandoned amusement park. No matter where I see these images, they give me a shiver up the spine. New at the time of the disaster, now skeletal frames are all that remains of many, with the looming Ferris wheel the most haunting of all. Another is the picture he took of a snow-lined street that really looks like it could be a cozy street anywhere."
San Francisco Book Review

Rachel Dehning
4/5 "...The pictures he provides are very detailed and show how life might have been in Chernobyl, a place that still looks livable despite its decline in residents. He then visited Pripyat, a town near the Chernobyl Nuclear Powerplant. These images, which appear to have been stopped in time,allow the viewer to enter the shoes of the citizens of these towns. You will be amazed at what they had to go through."
Manhattan Book Review

From the Author

We have seen the pictures of the distant and impersonal catastrophe before, but I wanted to know what normal life there had been like before the accident. I wanted to know what kinds of stoves families used to cook dinner. I wanted to know what books were stacked on their night stands. There's more to the exclusion zone than the disaster itself.

For the moments I couldn't capture, I asked my mom, a painter, to recreate them. These images are my input filtered through her artistic lens. As I roamed the zone, I also found beautiful typography, artwork, and designs in general. I asked a friend to reinterpret a portion of the artwork through digital illustration. For typography and packaging, I took a stab at recreating them digitally. I didn't want to take anything out of the zone, as that's not safe, and is certainly not respectful. The recreations in this book are my way of preserving what I found without disturbing the places I visited.

This book isn't meant for historical, political, or technical reference. Those topics have been covered extensively in great works you can find online. This is just a humble record of my trip to Chernobyl, written down and distributed in hopes of teaching somebody something new.
