iogr From risking his own life to get the first photograph of the meltdown, to sharing Chernobyl’s hazardous legacy with the world, Kostin takes readers on a journey through horror and hope in this amazing book. Apr 05, Fishface rated it it was amazing Shelves: A very powerful read that includes, not only the history of the Chernobyl disaster, but the history of the author who was brave and selfless enough to go back again and again over igorr course of 20 years to document it.
The photos range from historically significant, to inspiring, to heartbreaking; the text illuminates just enough of the repotero. Don’t miss this one.

Oct 12, Dachokie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ominously Graphic Account of a Forgotten Tragedy I was a sophomore in college on April 26, when the news of Chernobyl broke.
I remember sitting with friends in my dorm room when someone down the hall prompted us to adjust our television’s aluminum foil “rabbit ears” to see the news of an explosion at confewiones nuclear reactor in the Soviet Union. Looking back, I recall two simultaneous reactions: But, being young and in college at springtime on the other side of the world, the importance of Chernobyl as a newsworthy event dissipated almost immediately.
Over twenty years later, I finally took an interest in the Chernobyl accident The scenery in the games generated a craving to learn more about the mysterious events surrounding Chernobyl and the events that followed. The problem I’ve discovered with Chernobyl is that it doesn’t seem to get the attention it deserves. While the accident is always referenced as the “worst nuclear disaster in history”, the event, 25 years later, still remains clouded in mystery and for many in the Western Hemisphere, it sadly doesn’t even register as a significant event just ask any college kid.
Making matters worse, there is very little photographic evidence to paint a clearer picture of the event and its aftermath other than the exploitation and exaggeration of Chernobyl by video game developers.
This is why I found Igor Kostin’s book to be so valuable. Kostin was there, with his camera, in April and was so touched by the events unfolding that he kept coming back While primarily a book of photographs grouped into chapters dedicated to subject-matter, the pictures only tell part of the story. Kostin’s words add a significant degree of depth and sadness to the visual presentation. The combination of words and photos paint a much clearer picture of the drama that unfolded at Chernobyl in and the eerie nature of Soviet Union using humans as fodder in response to a crisis.
Starting with the only known picture taken of the Chernobyl plant the day of the explosion a radiation-hazed aerial view of the gaping hole in the No. The pictures speak volumes: Other photos document meager attempts of Soviet Union to contain the spread of radiation by burying villages and creating graveyards for the multitude of contaminated vehicles, but not the looters scavenging radioactive parts.
Photos of an eight-footed foal and a child suffering from mutations serve as examples of anomalies that may be linked to the disaster. Kostin’s photos and accompanying commentary initially reveal a much more chaotic and desperate scenario that I have previously seen, but photos of his subsequent returns to the region reveal the eerie beauty of natures resilience a radiation warning sign amid a field of yellow flowers and man’s doggedness elderly villagers fearlessly returning to their contaminated villages.
Kostin even documents his own bout with radiation sickness following numerous visits to the region. While the pictures tell a story, it is the author’s brief introductions to each chapter and photo commentary that bring the pictures to life. Sep 30, Kelley Goewey rated it it was amazing. A must-read if you’re interested in Chernobyl. Mar 17, Wes Metz rated it really liked it.
Photojournalist Igor Kostin was flying in a helicopter over Chernobyl reactor number four or what was left of it within hours of the accident; his photos of the immediate aftermath, followed by more images in the subsequent months and years, are a moving portrait of the human tragedy brought on by the inherent flaws of the Communist system.
The courage of the men sent in to attempt to contain the radiation storm is incredible; the bravery of the ‘liquidators’ who would receive a lifetime dose Photojournalist Igor Kostin was flying in a helicopter over Chernobyl reactor number four or what was left of it within hours of the accident; his photos of the immediate aftermath, followed by more images in the subsequent months and years, are a moving portrait of the human tragedy brought on by the inherent flaws of the Communist system.
The courage of the men sent in to attempt to contain the radiation storm is incredible; the bravery of the ‘liquidators’ who would receive a lifetime dose in their allotted forty seconds on the roof of reactor three is unquestioned; the suffering of the citizens of Pripyat and of the villages and farms in the exclusion zone is ongoing.
In pictures and text, Kostin paints an unforgettable picture of the effects of human arrogance in the nuclear age. It’s a quick read and well worth the reader’s time. Dec 01, Chris rated it it was amazing. This is a fantastic photo-journalistic account by Igor Kostin who was one of the first members of the media on site directly after the disaster.
Through words and photographs you can see his love for the people who gave so much to protect others during this time. He continued to return to the area for years to come and shares his observations, thoughts and fears throughout the book.

I first learned about him through the Discovery Channel’s documentary, The True Battle of Chernobyl and would highly encourage anyone interested in the subject to watch it: Jun 21, Dawn rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve read several books about the Chernobyl incident, looked up info on the Internet, and watched the few documentaries I could find.
This book contains photos I had never seen before. The author lived with the clean-up crews for months, and spent a lot of time photographing the plant and the surrounding area. Not much scientific detail here, but a very personal account of the early days after the incident. Jan 04, Zaz rated it it was amazing Shelves: Under the Chernobyl sarcophagus rest courage and altruism. Soldiers and people gave their lives to save the world against the radiations and few persons know about it.
Because of this, these books matter, and this one is a good way to pay a tribute to common heroes, through the words and photographies of a survivor. We need more of this in our history school books, mankind has to learn that carelessness can have an heavy cost. Jun 01, Jenny rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a compilation of ground zero photographs of the Chernobyl reactor, Pripyat, and the surrounding villages at different points immediately after and years after the explosion.
Igor Kostin got a press pass from Moscow and documented the reactor, the cleanup effort, and the illnesses it caused in those who participated and the children born years afterward. These are the most firsthand photographs I’ve ever seen of Chernobyl and its disastrous effects. Jul 25, Diana rated it it was amazing.
