PROJECT: RADIOACTIVE FEEDING.
Food today is more serious than it seems.
Eating in Ukraine or Belarus can cost you dearly. Radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear reactor contaminated thousands of hectares of agricultural land. The inhabitants of these areas consume the foods laden with cesium-137 and strontium-90 that they produce in their own homes. Radioactive isotopes are deposited in your body affecting different organs and making them sick or even die. The lack of resources and real information makes these foods continue to be consumed. The price of feeding in Chernobyl is a slow and silent death. This photo series shows food from the Ukrainian village of Orane, a hamlet within the contaminated area. They are food presented directly, as if it were a portrait. Still lifes that invite us to be looked at and who want to ask us a question: Do we really know what we are eating?
