I stumbled across this site while looking for other things. It details a young woman’s motorcycle travels through “the dead zone” around Chernobyl. Incredible. Simply incredible. The images are so stark and her commentary is so matter-of-fact that it borders on surreal. It gave me the chills.
To quote Elena: “Perhaps future archeologists will compare this Ghost Town to Pompeii. The Soviet era is forever preserved here – in the deadly radiation that will last for many centuries.”
