Chernobyl Zone (II) is empty of human life and marks an area without people. It is the deserted urban zone of Pripyat, just 4km (2.5m) from the reactor, and which was evacuated thirty years ago on 27 April 1986.
At the time of the accident, the Ukrainian town had a population of 49,000. One survivor says: “Chernobyl is the name which stands for the catastrophe, but Pripyat is the truly unbearable place.”
Russian photographer A Krementschouk has documented some of the penetrating scenes of what is left behind and some of the people who survive.
