Interesting site. Some guy apparently took a photographic interest in the Chernobyl site. He created this image library of the site and surrounding areas.
The images are a little boring. There's not much going on, but the implications are astounding. The danger here is invisible. It's a world frozen in time from the blast. Lucky for us, it was a Russian town that America never heard of. If this happened in Ohio, we'd have a much different take on it.
I wonder if this guy got sick from being there? Why would he risk it? I do understand, though. For some reason, I'm fascinated by disaster sites. Some of you might remember a previous blog about a site with images from Hiroshima. Something about the world as we know it being destroyed is so stark and bitter, it's hard to turn away.
Shout-out to Matt Schatz for the link. Matt, you are now the 5th regular reader of the blog. Congratulations!!! You're in good company with Harley, Brian, Bill, and Jen.
