For many, the displacement and loss of community stability was as traumatic as the accident itself.The website takes you through a tour and it is very beautiful. Yes there are a few hard images but the amazing tenacity of the people left behind is worth seeing. There are quite a few moments of songs as well from people who live in the area and they are eerily absorbing. I don't quite understand why you would want to return to a diseased place but the beauty of their souls shines out as they sing. Maybe for some home is just so necessary they will stay no matter what the cost. The stories told are simply beautiful and I highly recommend spending an thirty minutes or so perusing the site when you get a moment. I'll end with how the photographer ends it:
I created this exhibit because I want the world to know what I know: the people of Chernobyl are not victims, mutants and orphans. They are simply people living their lives, with their own joys and sorrows, hopes and fears. Like you. Like me.
