Zone of Alienation
Some day I watched an interesting TV documentation about the chernobyl disaster which inspired me to do this. Since then I am particularly interested in this topic and all images are inspired by lots of TV documentations and PC Games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Metro etc. However these images are not taken somewhere near Pripyat or the Reactor 4 but in an old abandoned industrial park in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. In know this area and the buildings quite well because I've spent years there going to school and finally made my high-school diploma nearby. My grandfather and mother even actually worked in these buildings during former GDR times back then.
Down to the present day there are people living in this zone of alienation without power and pure water. Except one truck who comes along every week there's no possibility to bye food or anything else there. The whole area is a 30 km² exclusion zone around the site of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster from 1986.
