from there and here [abandoned]



1 // there: we are invited to join some friends on a trip to chernobyl & pripyat to learn a little about the nuclear disaster that occured there in 1986. to say it was memorable was an understatement. it’s interesting to see what happens when a place is abandoned and nature starts to reclaim the space. august 2011

2 // here: the old sale yards near hagley park in christchurch. abandoned for much less sinister reasons

+ there’s a really amazing video by danny cooke on vimeo made using a camera mounted on a drone for those of you who want to see some of what we saw, without actually visiting!

+ there’s a few more photos from our trip here
