""It is difficult to talk and write about #Chernobyl. The very structure of witnessing breaks down once the event, with all its extraordinary and death-bearing potential, practically merges with everyday life thanks to its imperceptibility. What is there to say about an exposure to radiation that cannot be seen or smelled or heard or touched or tasted?" The artist Anaïs Tondeur made this photogram — a direct imprint on photosensitive paper — of a #Geranium grown in Chernobyl's radioactive soil. Her work accompanies an essay by Michael Marder that was published in the @nytimes opinion section. Visit the link in our profile to read more of the essay and to see more #photograms by Anaïs."
