I took this shot at Middle School Number 3 in the ghost town of Pripyat, Ukraine within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The town of Pripyat was established in 1970 to serve the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor. It was evacuated after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster on 27 April 1986. The city remains deserted and desolate—a reminder of the incredible destructive power of nuclear energy.
