"Chernobyl""'s Atomic Legacy: 25 years since disaster" is a collaboration of eight different photographers from all over Europe. It contains 74 poignant photos over 96 pages. The book documents the current state of Chernobyl and neighboring worker's town Pripyat which is the site of what is considered to be the worst nuclear accident in the history of mankind. The 30km Exclusion Zone set around Chernobyl is slowly but surely being reclaimed by nature. Pripyat is now a site of negative heritage, a decaying monument to the lives and memories lost by the people that once inhabited it.The book aims to illustrate what has been left behind, the objects, rooms, schools, hospitals, and homes. It conveys both a sense of the tragedy that remains, whilst still being objective and documenting the changes the area has undergone since its near total abandonment.
