Chernobyl by Peter Untermaierhofer

Peter Untermaierhofer is one of the best-known German actors in the field of lost places photography. His motifs are places and structures built by people, but abandoned and abandoned over time.

In today's ghost town of Prypjat, Untermaierhofer photographed scenes that capture the morbid atmosphere on site in a fascinating way and thus document the destruction and decay caused by the reactor catastrophe in 1986. In his portfolio you can expect insights into the photographic work in abandoned places as well as an exciting and impressive travel report about the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
