Return to Chornobyl

I recently returned from an assignment to Chornobyl nuclear power plant and the exclusion zone around it, in Ukraine. I was there commissioned by Greenpeace Germany to work as a part of a team conducting a radiation survey of the Russian military impact after their March 2022 occupation of the zone, and to make photographs […]

But let’s step back a bit… Many years […]
