Infrared Photos Of The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone That Reveal An Untouched Paradise

No matter how far mankind evolves, we will never be a match for Mother Nature's tumultuous power. She can reclaim even our greatest creations in the blink of an eye.

And according to photographer Vladimir Migutin, no place better illustrates her power to remodel our world than the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

Armed with a full spectrum camera and a 590nm infrared filter from Kolari Vision, Migutin visited the 1000-square-mile stretch of forsaken land to capture Mother Nature at work. The nuclear catastrophe forced humans to move on, but plant and animal life have redoubled their efforts, transformed the wasteland to a lush landscape.

...it felt like I was in a “kind of” paradise on a different planet.

Thirty years after the fallout, while men still stay away, the forests, the animals, the plants, everything is thriving, revived by nature.

"It’s pretty hard to describe the overall atmosphere I experienced during this trip," Migutin says of the two-day excursion. "Despite the events of 1986, the ruins, and the rust, I didn’t have grim feelings while traveling there. On the contrary, it felt like I was in a “kind of” paradise on a different planet.
