His Slippers ~ Chernobyl by Josephine Pugh

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I visited the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in October 2011. When there, it took me a long time to take photographs, and afterwards it’s taken me a long time to come back to these images to look at them again. It was a deeply profound experience. All the facts are here.

This is the kindergarten on the outskirts of the Zone of Alienation.

Please email me at or bubblemail me if you wish to purchase a photographic print of this image.

A photograph is a trace of its subject. The viewer and the image belong to each other. Capturing these traces is a passion, an obsession for me. I hope the thrill comes through in my images.
