These Dolls are the souls of children who have not returned home.
At 01:23:47 on Saturday, April 26, 1986, an explosion occurred at the 4th power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The first message about the accident appeared in the Soviet media on April 27, 36 hours after the disaster. First, the population of the 10-kilometer zone was evacuated. It was forbidden to take with them things, toys, many were evacuated in home clothes. In order not to sow panic, it was reported that the evacuees would return home in three days ... 33 years have passed.
Pripyat - This is a city where the Soviet Union never ended, and the radiation still exceeds the norm by 500 times. This city is a monument to the tragedy, a symbol of the ghostly presence of man and his" power", a trace of life and struggle for it. No city in the world can be so quiet, you can even hear the blood pulsing in your ears. I knew that there was no one here, but I felt that someone was watching me. I could almost feel the misery and the pain, the fear and the cold that the people of this godforsaken city had endured.
This series of photos was taken in February 2019 in Chernobyl. I tried to understand what I saw and understand my feelings and memories. A trip to the Chernobyl "exclusion Zone" — it was not for entertainment, it's a reason to think about your own life....
