Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl


We've seen tons of photographs of the city of Pripyat, Ukraine, which has been abandoned since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, but this video offers a different view.

Cinematographer Danny Cooke was able to fly a drone through the city, capturing the current state of decay. He managed to shoot some stunning footage of the abandoned city, slowly being taken over by the elements.

"Chernobyl is one of the most interesting and dangerous places I've been. The nuclear disaster, which happened in 1986 (the year after I was born), had and effect on so many people, including my family when we lived in Italy. I can't imagine how terrifying it would have been for the hundreds of thousands of locals who evacuated," Cooke wrote.
