Chernobyl

 2016 marks 30 years since the tragic Chernobyl accident took place in what was the USSR and now is Ukraine. There are many haunting photographs from this troubled area, but visiting Chernobyl in 2015, I wanted to find my own way of telling the story of this nuclear accident which took place 30 years ago.

Since I love photographing architecture and interiors, I decided to photograph Pripyat (the closest city to the Chernobyl nuclear plant) just like I would any client assignment, paying close attention to lines and architectural and interior details which I felt provided a sharp contrast with the starkness of all these abandoned places.
