Chernobyl. My abandoned house.

Chernobyl. Now my family can't come back here. Our abandoned house. Ukraine, 2018. Chernobyl is a ghost town - a contaminated, deserted place where time stands still. Chernobyl was the scene of the world's worst nuclear accident. Chernobyl remains a searing wound, which proves every day how fragile our world is and how easily nature can be damaged.
