The wait can last for up to eight hours. Using his large format 4×5 camera, 33 year-old Sydney photographer Samuel Burns hides under a dark cloth to carefully compose his image on a ground glass, seeing the image up-side-down and back-to-front he utilises old fashioned dials and movements such as rise, tilt and shift to adjust and refine his composure.

After the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in April 1986, the Ukrainian government created the Exclusion Zone, an area of restricted access meant to contain the degenerative effects of the radioactive fallout from the blast and a way to keep curious eyes away from one of the worst nuclear power plant accidents in history. However, despite a natural population that still persists to this day, tourists can be granted day passes to explore the irradiated ruins of Chernobyl and neighboring city Pripyat. Hélène DemiPoulpe Veilleux’s photo journal documents her travel into the Zone, uncovering the remnants of lives left behind in the two ghost towns, which still stand to this day as twin sacrifices to the alter of scientific progress.
