The creative output & visual meanderings of Matt Wright
The Chernobyl disaster is widely considered to have been the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and is one of only two classified as a level 7 event (the maximum classification) on the International Nuclear Event Scale.
This series document some of the spaces within the 10km exclusion zone which to this day is still unsafe for human habitation. It is as serene an environment as it is dangerous & although nature has done its best to reclaim it the human detritus abandoned almost 30 years ago makes it impossible to forget what came before.

One of four photospherical installations undertaken between 2008 & 2009 which explored notions of loss & memory as part of my creative input towards the 'Ghosts in Armour' project.
