---update---

I’d like to dedicate this work to liquidators, who sacrificed their life to save us. They are among the bravest of the world. They are heroes.
I’m very grateful to deviantART community for respecting the tragedy of my nation. Thanks to dA, people around the globe remember about the 26th of April. History of Chernobyl cannot be forgotten. Tragedy of millions should become the example for billions. I’m personally thankful to everyone who has visited this page and especially grateful to otsego-amigo and PorcelainPoet.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-26
In memory of the Chernobyl disaster which occurred April 26th, 1986 I am featuring Take a seat by ~Brute-ua. Guided Tours inside the deserted areas of Pripyat, Ukraine now allow people to experience the eerie desolation and emptiness of a place that was once home to around 50,000 people prior to the nuclear accident. ~Brute-ua captured a tragic and important part of history with this thought provoking and profound photograph. ( Suggested by otsego-amigo and Featured by PorcelainPoet )
:icondmitrybulletdodger:
What makes you a good photographer? Hi-end cameras,lenses,lights etc.? I always thought that even a dead-brain monkey can take a good shot with hi-end set which includes highly expensive camera and even more expensive lens. Nowadays cameras can almost think for them selves and make a good shot.

So what really makes you a good photographer? It is the ability to SEE and to FEEL what you want to show people in your photography. Your works must touch some strings in the hearts or the souls of the people. I have never been to Pripyat. Though I dream about, that some day I will be able to go there. I've seen many shots from the Zone, but only some of them could give me the chills.

"Take a seat" by :iconbrute-ua: is a marvelous shot. It glued my eyes to it when I first saw in the DD section. It is well-deserved! Everything is great here..the colors, the angle and most important-the mood. I still think that this is one of the best photographs on Deviant Art. Sergey knew exactly what he wanted to show us. This shot is only a mere glimpse to the Zone. And thanks to Sergey, you also can take a trip there. Only without taking a doze of radiation.
What do you think?

Hands down! The greatest work of art I have ever seen. Yes I am sorry about your countrymen. It was a fucked up accident. And made worse by a bullshit cold war. We are all brothers. Yet pride gets in the way. Look at the Kursk. We could have saved lives but bullshit politics. Okay, enough. I love your work.

No problem ^^

I have the 1984, my mother always told me that because of the fallout, my grandfather chose to eradicate all the vegetables in the garden and drank more milk.

I almost do not remember the year I was very young.

i can't formulate true reasons of going there. i didn't lived in the Zone before the accident (i was born one year after, actually), neither my natives nor friends. let's name it as subconscious pilgrimage.
