Hot Tourist Destinations: Chernobyl!

Tropisms > Chernobyl > Lost Souls from POLYMORF on Vimeo.

The area of the Ukraine surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear power plat is a modern day ghost town. Military vehicles sit rusting in fields and plants that seem to be unaffected by the radiation have reclaimed the space humans took from them. In this ghost town buildings sit eerily vacant in the same state they were abandoned except for the years of decay. Books and boxes of food sit out never to be eaten or read by their one time owners. You can't look at these images and be a bit scarred that this may be all of our futures due to nuclear war or an accident at a nuclear power plant.
