A picture named controlRoom.jpg
"Declared unfit for human habitation, the "Zones of Exclusion" includes the towns of Pripyat (established in the 1970s to house workers) - and Chernobyl. "


"In May 2001, Robert Polidori photographed what was left behind in this dead zone. His richly detailed images move from the burned-out control room of Reactor 4 - where technicians staged the experiment that caused the disaster - to the unfinished apartment complexes, ransacked schools and abandoned nurseries that remain as evidence of all those people who once called Pripyat home."(Globalist PhotoGallery > Zones of Exclusion > Robert Polidori's Chernobyl)
