Photographer Timm Suess is passionate about capturing decay in our world. He travels to abandoned factories, clinics, and military installations to photograph the places people leave behind.

In a talk at TEDxGundeldingen, Suess details his Chernobyl Journal: a project that led him to the city of Pripyat, Ukraine, which was abandoned after the Chernobyl disaster.

Above, photos from the project, which documents places lost to the disaster.

That is a super rad project. Toni Mirosevich also wrote a beautiful short piece called Weird Strawberries, that matches the powerful embodiment of life and loss from Chernobyl.
