The world’s worst nuclear accident happened on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Just 5 months after the disaster, a girl was born in Kiev which is located 100 km south from Chernobyl. The wind included a great amount of radioactive elements blown from the north to the south-west. Finally, it spread widely, to areas including Europe and the girl became one of the victims of the tragedy. This series of pictures represent the last 30 years of the life of that invisible girl.

All pictures were taken by old Ukrainian colour negative films which were found in the city of Pripyat, located 5 km from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
