I have hundreds of pictures I would have liked to include in “Midnight In Chernobyl” but only limited space. So I’ll post a few of them here, starting with images from before the accident.
The book is out today: bit.ly/2GngnVa #Chernobyl @sovietvisuals Chernobyl Unit 4, photographed around the time it first came online, in December 1983. (Petr Vyhovsky/Pripyat-city.ru)
Here's the infamous Ferris wheel in Pripyat, due to open for the first time as part of the celebrations for the May holidays in 1986. (Petr Vyhovsky/Pripyat-city.ru)
Here's a view of the city of Pripyat from the river, showing the white sand beaches and the Rakete hydrofoil, which provided daily service to and from Kiev (Vitaly Kozlov/Pripyat-city.ru)
This is the view of Pripyat looking northeast, with the power plant three kilometers away on the horizon. Unit Four is the closest of the plant's reactors to the city perimeter (Nikolay Belekhov/Pripyat-city.ru)
