This time, I returned to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in February. Not accidentally. Snow, frost, hoarfrost and white trees – I wanted to return to the most popular places and photograph them in a winter aura. The places covered with a thick layer of white, powdery snow seem more beautiful in winter. You cannot see the destroyed streets, garbage and the general greyness that we get accustomed to in autumn.
I returned also because I simply missed the zone. This time, however, there will be no stories. Just photos. Here is THE ZONE – the Winter Edition.

it all shows that the earth doesn’t need humans on it. Humans are destroyers. It would have been better had we not existed at all.
