Quintina Valero: LIFE after CHERNOBYL

22 February - 6 March 2018

Quintina Valero (b. 1970, Germany) is an award-winning documentary and press photographer. Her documentary work focuses on human rights and humanitarian crisis with an emphasis on migration, working often with local NGOs around the world. 


Between April 2015 and May 2016 Quintina travelled to Ukraine to find out about the implications of Chernobyl’s accident.


Life After Chernobyl presents a collection of photographs that portray life from the Narodichi Region, 50 km southwest of Chernobyl’s nuclear plant, one of the worst hit areas by the radiation and only detected five years after the explosion. 


These photographs are a testimony to the communities living with the poisonous legacy of Chernobyl. The radiation is, and continues to be, their invisible enemy.
