I’ve seen my fair share of documentary photographs about the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, but I’ve never seen a set of photos so powerful and well put together as those from Robert Knoth. [via]

In nuclear NIGHTMARES: Twenty Years Since Chernobyl, Robert Knoth documents the aftereffects of the world’s most devastating nuclear disaster with great detail. Together with reporter Antoinette De Jong, Knoth presents a substantial look at how this one event has changed thousands of lives for the worse.

Be warned: Some of the images are graphic and tragic.
