Thank you for your warm and kind words! Iíve received many questions regarding my photos and trips to Chernobyl. I'm sorry to say that I canít send or publish higher resolution photos since I sold copyrights to most of my stuff to fine art gallery. But if somebody wants to take your own photos you can join to one of my future photo expeditions to Chernobyl!

Welcome Arkadiusz. Your images are very haunting and displays very well what can happen when we are not careful with dangerous materials. I hope you will continue to post more images of eastern Europe. We don't often get to see much of it. Thanks for sharing these with us.

I had read that it's eeriely quiet in the area.

How many checkpoints do you have to go through to actually get close to Chernobyl????

I remember reading through the GhostTown weblog from a long time ago ... and was amazed to actually see images from back then.

Awesome!
Only now we have to find the time and opportunity to get there with you.
Perhaps we could organise a Chernobyl photography workshop just like the famous Utah one.

You're very brave to go in there and grab some pics. Also check this out:

Zones of Exclusion: Pripyat and Chernobyl

It's one of my favorite books.

Desolate, abandoned , devoid of human life...but I understand not a animal life which has taken over this area...no humans .

Excellent pictures, very documentary, B+W is the only medium to capture the essence of this dead zone.

Stunning photos. The sepia works well here.
