NPPA award!

Viktor Gaidak shows his scar.
I just learned today that I've won a National Press Photographer Association's Best of Photojournalism award! OK. To be accurate, DOUBLEtruck magazine and their editors won the award for their good work photo editing my recent Chernobyl article.

See the winning essay here.

DOUBLEtruck is a great little quarterly photojournalism magazine affiliated with my agency Zuma Press. Looks like we beat out Sports Illustrated and the Seattle Times in this category. Fitting that this should come on Chernobyl's anniversary.

thinking of Chernobyl

The city of Slavutych, Ukraine, celebrates its annual Day of the City with a parade and a concert on the central square. Slavutych is the city built after the 1986 Chernobyl accident to house relocated workers from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Slavutych was the last city built by the Soviet Union.
Today is the anniversary of the Chernobyl accident. 26 years. It's been a generation now. I've been thinking all day about all my friends in Slavutych and Ivankiv and Sukachi and everywhere in the Chernobyl-affected zones.

Будьте щасливі! Будьте здоровіЯ скучаю по тебе.
