Chornobyl Exclusion Zone
Parishiv Village, Ukraine, 2000

This woman's family lived in Parish, which is in the 30-kilometer exclusion zone, for generations. The exclusion zone is supposedly off limits to human habitation due to the high level of radioactive contamination. However, several hundred people, mostly elderly, have returned to the highly radioactive land. Several years ago she came back to her home to live and die in her native village.
