Delighted that 'Bumper' by Des Gould has been selected for the 2015 Environmental Photographer of the Year Awards.
Bumper, Chernobyl, Ukraine
"Taken in Pripryat, just 3 km from the nuclear reactor that burned for 11 days, 29 years ago. The bumper was a part of a funfair and sports complex in the town that was due to open as part of the May Day celebrations. It was never used. The accident occurred a few days ahead of the opening. I had to turn this shot into black and white because I was shooting into the sun. Time was at a premium, as I was only allowed 1 hour inside the 15km exclusion zone. Pripryat, Ukraine, October 2013."
