Exclusion

Image

Here’s another gallery of those threshold spaces I’m so drawn to; though far grimmer than the edgelands I wrote about a few weeks ago.

These photos were taken within the exclusion zone at Chernobyl. These buildings have been sterilised, rather than evolved through abandonment. The atmosphere is flat and repellent, rather than mysterious or melancholic. The sadness is so heavy, so austere. The ghosts weigh heavy, and I never want to go there.

Thanks to Billy Kinnear Photography for pointing out this site.
