If you are old enough to remember Chernobyl, and even if you aren’t, the aftermath of the 1986 nuclear disaster is worth seeing. Gerd Ludwig, a well-known photojournalist has been taking photos for years since the accident in his many trips to the site. The record of the people forever changed by this tragedy is astounding. An iPad app with over 150 photos, video footage, and interactive panoramas share this tragic tale of human error and its irreparable impact.
