April 26 marks 35 years since one of the greatest man-made catastrophes at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. A topic about which a lot has been written, films have been made and even more has been said. The NPP itself, the Duga radar station, the city of Pripyat and its environs are more involved in the public discourse and lens of TV cameras. At the same time, there is very little information, and at times it is completely absent and forgotten, about the villages and hamlets that existed thousands of years before the NPP and lived at a leisurely pace in these swamps and forests.
At the end of March 2021, the HASCHI team together and thanks to the tour operator GAMMA TRAVEL made a two-day expedition to the exclusion zone. We tried to look at rural Chernobyl, places that are usually bypassed by the general public and tourists, places that are little talked about, places that are disappearing more and more every year.
We do not forget and thank everyone who supports the HUSHCHI project (in detail in the final captions)
