Chernobyl

Meet Ivan Ivanovich, one of the last remaining self-settlers in Chernobyl. Like many others, Ivan was sent to Kiev, away from his home in Paryshiv, as a result of what turned out to be the world’s worst nuclear disaster. Despite warnings of radiation, he eventually made his way back, choosing the risk of illness over city life.
