Mox is an ongoing photographic project attempting to research the contemporary community that was built around the Chernobyl disaster. Why do we as humans condemn ourseves to live in a constant vicious circle of interacion between destruction through evolution and evolution through destruction? The Chernobyl exclusion is a perfect example of a closed cycle of this vicious circle and, thus, a perfect place to research this phenomenon of constant human neglect.
As a result of human evolution and arrogance, an out of proportion nuclear disaster took place in 1986. Strangely enough, people have never seem to have left this place. A place that is known to have caused severe health complications and in many cases even a painful death correlated to a prolonged stay. Why are people attracted to this zone? How and why did a community and an ever so popular tourist attraction build itself up around this place?
