I was very lucky to receive a private tour of Pripyat & Chernobyl (The Exclusion Zone) as a 50th birthday present.
The photos in this gallery were all taken at various locations within the 30km exclusion zone on March 9th 2020, namely Zalissya, Kopachi, Chernobyl & Pripyat.
Over the years some people have moved items and repositioned them, but I have no way of knowing which items have been moved. I took photos of exactly what I saw and at no point have I touched or relocated anything for the benefit of a photo. Firstly, the rules are 'DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING' and secondly I find it disrespectful to interfere with such a historic location.
This was an incredible and moving experience, one that will live with me forever.
Please keep your eyes open for a blog on this subject which I will be posting in Q2 2020.
