Ukraine - selected digital prints

In October, 2007 I had the honor of visiting Ukraine as an ad hoc Cultural Emissary sent by the US Department of State
under the auspices of their Art In Embassies Program. Beyond my scheduled events, the Embassy staff made special
arrangements for behind-the-fence visits to sites that were of particular interest to my creative endeavors, including:

Container Dock–Odessa, digital print Odessa series

Port of

view series pdf

The great Port of Odessa on the Black Sea.
It is a major Maritime transportation hub for Eastern Europe and handles a wide variety of products.

Rivers of Steel, digital print Kryviy Rih series
Kryvyi Rih

view series pdf
The city of Kryvyi Rih which contains the largest steel-making complex in Eastern Europe.

Once a state-owned facility, it was acquired
by Arcelor Mittal Steel, the largest steel manufacturer in the World. On site I visited their Coking Plant, Blast Furnace #9, one of their Iron Ore Strip Mines and their Blooming Mill.
Reactors 3 and 4, digital, Chernobyl Series
Exclusion Zone

view series pdf
Janos was afforded the rare opportunity to visit the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

It is the site of the worst Nuclear disaster
in history. In the early morning hours
of April 26, 1986, a massive explosion and fire occurred in Reactor #4, spreading toxic levels of radiation over a wide area.
Cultural Center, digital print, Pripyat series Pripyat
“Dead Town”

view series pdf

Built in 1970, it was essentially a self-contained city, complete with schools,
a hospital, cultural center, restaurant and cafes, hotel and even a newly-constructed Amusement Park. The park was scheduled to open on May Day, 1986. No one ever rode on the rides.

The most compelling aspect of Chernobyl is how “normal” it all appears. Catfish teem in the reactor cooling channels and apple trees are loaded with fruit – all of it deadly, and radiation levels remain dangerously high

What is striking about Pripyat is the overwhelming silence.
