Interior of a railway station, village of Janov, October 1996
Winnipeg based photographer David McMillan first traveled to Chernobyl in October 1994 in order to document the results of the nuclear power plant disaster that occured eight years earlier. He has since traveled back on numerous occasions to follow up on the developments in the exclusion area, which include the continued proliferation of vegetation and the further deterioration of buildings and human artifacts. Haunting, fascinating, apocalyptic-type stuff. He was also a professor at my University. Represent!
