This is a contributor of the talkurbex forum who raised up to my attention because of his work about Pripyat/Chernobyl
As I said before, places that have been abandoned suddenly often hold a certain kind of magic, the signals of an alive past, something similar to the inspirational idea of Stalker
, the film by Tarkowskij.
That’s the main reason why I find the Pripyat ghost town so faschinating, like the amusement park’s pictures
, so alive… the park had to be opened the day after the Chernobyl tragedy.
On talkurbex there is a “for sale” forum in which you can exchange many materials with other forum users, please read the guidelines and the policy to understand how it works.
To sell urbex photos online, as mentioned on my last post Photodune
is the right place, see this abandoned basketball gymn in Pripyat/Chernobyl and taste how it feels:
It’s part of a bigger reportage
, from this author
, who seem to me a really good photographer enough brave to catch this pictures
in the ghost town of Pripyat.
Internet is full of documents and a lot of documentaries have been created about the fearfull location of Chernobyl on which the video game authors of “Stalker, Shadow of Chernobyl” have set their last work.
I love ghost towns, and as a final suggestion I did really enjoy this reportage about Ordos, China, the biggest ghost town in the world probably, with a beautiful story to tell.
In italy we have a community that shares images and location of ghost towns all around the country, it’s called “Paesi Fatasma” and the community that’s growning around them is reachable on this facebook page.
