product description

On 26 April 1986, reactor number 4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant
exploded. The accident released at least 100 times more radiation than the
bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan, and is considered to be
the worst nuclear accident in the history of humanity. It is classified as
a level 7 incident, the highest level on the International Nuclear Event
Scale. The only other incident to be categorized at this level is the
Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster of 2011. In the days, months and years
that followed, over half a million civilians and military personnel
("liquidators") were involved in the decontamination process to avert a
potential second catastrophe. Pripyat was home to a population of 49,000
and today it stands abandoned, overgrown by vegetation, subjected to
looting and vandalism, as a monument to the lives lost and the memories of
those evacuated. Jonglez Chernobyl atomic legacy is a photographic
testimony to the desolation left by the nuclear catastrophe.
