About the book:
Pictures of the restricted military zones of Priozersk and Kurtchatov, which did not appear on any map until well after the end of the Cold War. Long-distance missiles were secretly tested in Priozersk. Hundreds of atomic bombs were detonated in the so-called Polygon near Kurchatov, until the programme ended in 1989. The bombs were exploded in a remote but still populated area. Covert studies were made of the effects of the radiation on the unsuspecting inhabitants. Kander describes how the ticking of the Geiger counter on his belt while he photographed served as a foil against the aesthetic allure of the ruins.
