Growing up i got a fascination for post-apocalyptic scenarios, from movies like mad max, hardware, and games like fallout, wasteland and mutant. Later I got a taste for taking photos in Urban Exploration enviroment. So the idea of one day taking a trip to chernobyl as been a a favorite one for a long time. Last month ive got on a plane and went down to ukraine with two friends, and we got a private guided tour in the exclusion zone.

“An area extending 19 miles (31 km) in all directions from the plant is known as the “zone of alienation.” It is largely uninhabited, except for a few residents who have refused to leave. The area has largely reverted to forest. Even today, radiation levels are so high that the workers responsible for rebuilding the sarcophagus are only allowed to work five hours a day for one month before taking 15 days of rest. Ukrainian officials estimate the area will not be safe for human life again for another 20,000 years”

I love this place. Great photos about Chernobyl.
If you like post apocaliptic scenaries, and games like Fallout, I suppose you've tried the series "Stalker". Imprescindible. ;)
