Title : Zones of Exclusion - Pripyat and Chernobyl
Authors : Robert Polidori
Publisher : Steidl
Year : 2003
ISBN-13 :3882439211
Language : English

Description :
In the 11 days following the Chernobyl catastrophe on April 26, 1986, more than 116,000 people were permanently evacuated from the area surrounding the nuclear power plant. Declared unfit for human habitation, the Zones of Exclusion includes the towns of Pripyat (established in the 1970s to house workers) and Chernobyl.
In May 2001, Robert Polidori photographed what was left behind in this dead zone and his large-scale photographs capture the faded colors and desolate atmosphere of these two towns, producing haunting documents that present the reader with a rare view of not just a disastrous event, but a place and the people who lived there.
