Chernobyl | Photo Essay, April 2016

A visit to Chernobyl and the radioactive ghost town of Pripyat offers a glimpse into a world that no longer exists. Standing at the entrance of the exclusion zone, I felt excitement. But the deeper I got, the excitement gave way to an eerie sensation as wave after wave of the devastation and events that day actually started to hit me. Visiting the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone was for sure one of the most unsettling experiences I’d ever had.
