Photographer David Schindler recently visited the site of the nuclear tragedy, and documented what the surrounding area looks like 25 years later. For those who don't know the Chernobyl disaster is one of the largest nuclear disasters in Human history.
While some might call his work "disaster porn", it's the closest most of us will ever get to witnessing the devastation firsthand. It also puts into perspective how there is still a long way to go before the region can return to anything approaching normal life. Click here to go through the gallery of Schindler's work.
