The 26th marked the 27th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Photographer Ric Wright, on his website urban pixels, has this fabulous gallery of images for his book Dark Priyat.

Dark Pripyat is an extraordinary interactive collection of Pripyat and Chernobyl pictures from the abandoned exclusion zone during visits from 2010 & 2011 and is available as a downloadable book from the iBookstore, PDF format and is also available in print.

Dark Pripyat is Urbanpixels’ first interactive photo book* which is exclusively available on Apple’s iBookstore for the Apple iPad. We believe that the iPad platform is one of the best to view some of the stunning photography from around the Chernobyl exclusion zone & the abandoned city of Pripyat and is available free for you to download right now.

Dark Pripyat includes images and sound recordings* taken in the zone of alienation throughout 2 visits spanning 2 years between 2010 & 2011. The book also provides information about the accident in 1986 at reactor 4 and it’s lasting effects around Europe.
