Chernobyl by Chris Wevers

The photographer Chris Wevers had the courage to visit Chernobyl in the Ukraine. Actually they are building a new concrete shelter roof to cover the nuclear disaster. After Fukushima this Chernobyl as an unforgettable lesson crept into our minds again. And because I just wrote an article about the city Dnipropetrovsk, also Ukraine, I asked the photographer Chris Wevers to share three of his Chernobyl documents: (1) a merry-go-round, never used, (2) a swimming-pool, dry, in Pripyat, and (3) some tanks and trucks still radioactive: click on the pictures to enter the flickr galleries of Chris Wevers…

  7. I’ve read somewhere that due to total absence of man in this area now, the flora and fauna has taken an incredible flight (without the expected ‘freaks-of-nature’ as a result of the radiation!).

    Is this what the world will look like if one day mankind is just wiped-out…?? Nature taking over our artificial creations, blossoming like never before…

  9. Wonderful to bring us up to date somewhat on how Chernobyl is in the present. You are right: it was very much on our minds after the Fukishima event in March of 2011. The “critters” taking over may be where my own critterly journey allegorical narrative poetry series is headed on my own blog.
