These dramatic photos in black and white were taken by World Press Photo Winner, Robert Knoth, and first exhibited in April 2006 on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster. The images give a human face to the impacts of a nuclear disaster and allow us a glimpse into a future that chooses a nuclear path.

N.B. – The Bantayog Museum (2/F J.R. Salonga Building) shall be open to the public until 8PM. The museum features pictures artifacts and memorabilia covering the pre-martial period, repression, and resistance to the Marcos dictatorship.
