In this new series, we wanted to highlight the terrible shock felt by locals who return. We asked former residents and landowners to return to their businesses and schools, to push open the doors to these once everyday settings. Facing the camera, they reacted as though, “nothing had happened,” and behaved normally. The strange and the commonplace come together in these almost supernatural and yet plausible photographs, the result of a historic nuclear disaster.
