Chernobyl, 2013

"In April 1986, re­actor No.4 of the Chernobyl nuc­lear power plant ex­ploded. Heli­copter pi­lots spent two weeks dump­ing thou­sands of tonnes of sand on the fire be­fore it was fi­nally ex­tin­guished. Sol­diers then used wheel­bar­rows and shovels to col­lect ra­dio­act­ive rubble, which they tipped into the cent­ral heap. Fi­nally con­struc­tion crews ar­rived. Dur­ing the six months pro­ceed­ing the ac­ci­dent they built a steel and con­crete con­tain­ment struc­ture over the re­act­or's re­mains. They nick­named it the Sar­co­phagus. It was badly con­struc­ted. It has cor­roded. Now it could col­lapse."

This pho­to­graphy book stud­ies two of the sur­round­ing areas to the Chernobyl Nuc­lear power plant as well as the plant it­self where a large scale en­gin­eer­ing pro­ject is well un­der way. Fore­word by An­drew Hankin­son and de­signed by Each Lon­don the book is sec­tion sewn and has a unique fold out cover with an in­ner cover as well, re­flect­ing the pro­tect­ive ob­ject­ives of the New Safe Con­fine­ment doc­u­mented in the book.

Svålbard, 2010

"In the Svål­bard ar­chipelago, over 600 miles north of Nor­way, the sun does­n't set between April and Au­gust. From Oc­to­ber un­til Feb­ru­ary, on the other hand, it does­n't ap­pear at all. As one of the closest land­masses to the North Pole, it may seem an in­hos­pit­able cli­mate for all but the most re­si­li­ent of miners or fish­er­men. Near the north­erly town of Longyearbyen on the is­land of Spits­ber­gen, however, the ag­ri­cul­tural equi­val­ent of Noah's Ark is nestled in the side of a snow covered moun­tain…"

The book is clev­erly di­vided into two dis­tinct sec­tions: the first stud­ies the land­scape and in­hab­it­ants of this Arc­tic out­post, the second then ex­plores the im­press­ive Sval­bard Global Seed Vault and more. The bind­ing re­flects the rough nature of the en­vir­on­ment and in­side uses a con­sidered mix of semi-gloss and matt pa­per stocks, all bril­liantly de­signed by Each Lon­don.
