    Wow. I hope you're not glowing. Great work. Very evocative.

    Stunning. I'm amazed you got permission to do what you did. The modern appearance of the city was quite striking. Quite contrary to the propaganda that was feed to us at the time. I found the walk through you did with the "head cam" most illuminating.I wanted to move back from the screen each time the radiation levels rose.

    Really amazing work. Its very moving and scary subject but it has to be told.
    How a few big and small mistakes add up to massive death and then compounding it with a coverup.

    Ive always been very interested in the abandoned buildings, railroads and hospitals around westchester.
    But this is a whole different thing. It sort of makes me want to go at some point radiation or not.
    Persuading someone to go with me is a whole nother issue.

    I've seen a few photos in the past from people who have visited Chernobyl. It looks fascinating. Love your photos, Arek. Fantastic work!

    Google should do a Chernobyl street view.

    Amazing work.
    I've always found ghost towns fascinating, and Prypiat even more so. I'd love to go there sometime (though I probably never will, unfortunately ).
    Thanks for sharing this.
