Hashima Island, Japan

Pripiat, Ucrain

Pripiat is a city once populated with over 50.000 people. After the nuclear disaster from Chernobyl, from 1986, the city was abandoned due to the radiations. It is clear that in lack of people, nature has made its mark upon the streets and buildings and the result seems one of a horror movie.
