Andrej Korsak, It’s my comfort Zone
Andrej Korsak is no stranger to the Chernobyl Zone – his dedication to this powerful place is unwavering. He started as a tourist and now can be a decent guide himself.
“Being there, surrounded by the seizing Nature, feeling numb for some reason, hearing and feeling the silence – I can’t explain it, there are no words for this. So I decided to share my experience, my vision through the photography“.
Andrej says that his visits to Pripyat helped him to reinvent himself completely. “I have never been so inspired, I rediscovered myself, my biggest desires and insecurities were all there in front of me”.
He keeps coming back every year. “I’ve read and seen almost every piece of information about the Chernobyl Zone.. I see all these tourists come and go every weekend – it makes me even more eager to capture my Zone, my favourite places, my greatest discoveries and the most sacred revelations. I call it ‘my comfort Zone’ , because it’s the only place where I feel myself safe and whole”.
