It looks like her stories were written a while back, but this is the first time I’ve seen the accounts of Elena Filatova, and her supposed journies into the contaminated lands of Chernobyl. “Ghost Town” and “Land of the Wolves” are the stories.
I doubt a number of elements of her story, though the pictures are quite striking. In some cases, I even doubt the pictures. For the most part, the pictures remind me a bit of the lands that I travelled through in Half-Life 2. Perhaps they modelled the lay of the land after the likes of Chernobyl.
My first reaction, of course, is that this is a tall tale. Still, it’s enthralling to see the pictures and read some of her account her travels.
