PRIPYAT, UKRAINE - APRIL 2017: An abandoned bedroom, taken in Pripyat, Ukraine, April 2017.

OVER 30 years after the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl, the city of Pripyat is exactly as it was the day it was evacuated. On the afternoon of April 27, 1986 a population of almost 50,000 abandoned the city following a catastrophic nuclear accident. And 31 years later airline employee, Andreas Jansen, has visited the ghost town to photograph what nature has reclaimed.
