Pripyat, Ukraine. 30 years after the Chernobyl accident.

"Memories Faded" it's a visual project about what every person who comes to the Chernobyl zone today feels and sees. There are no people, no animals, no life in these pictures. Only what's left of human activity: abandoned buildings and forgotten things.

The time comes and even the memories fade.
