Inside 'the zone'

Sergei Gaschak’s photography shows a very different kind of island from those usually featured on this website. Using camera traps as well as conventional techniques, he has attempted to capture the remarkable wildlife that now thrives inside 'the zone' - the area around the Chernobyl power station that has been largely closed to humans since the nuclear meltdown in 1986.
