Shadowlands: From Chernobyl to Fukushima is a haunting photo exhibit on the loss suffered as a result of the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear disasters. The exhibit's 26 images juxtapose the human and environmental impacts of both disasters by presenting them in pairs.
Each set of photos contains stylistic or compositional similarities that link the two disasters. The visual parallels evoke a connection between these events and the possibility of a similar disaster occurring in Canada.
The photos featured in the exhibit were taken by photographer Robert Knoth and journalist Antoinette de Jong during their visits to the surrounding areas of Chernobyl between 1999 and 2005 and the Fukushima region in the fall of 2011.
Both Knoth and de Jong are internationally renowned for their ability to beautifully capture gritty subjects. Their award-winning work has been showcased all over the world and published in The New York Times and National Geographic.
