    "THE LONG SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL". Gerd LUDWIG
    Over 20 years, Gerd Ludwig has been reporting on the aftermath of the nuclear catastrophe in Chernobyl. He first photographed in the exclusion zone in 1993 for National Geographic Magazine, bringing him deeper into the contaminated Reactor No. 4 than any western still photographer. Ludwig’s project is not mere documentation but rather a deep analysis of the aftermath of the nuclear catastrophe, still affecting the social, ecological, and physical well-being of people. The exhibition will present several series by Ludwig, dedicated to the nuclear power station, the town of Pripyat and its surroundings, local inhabitants and their children, who have suffered radiation exposure.
