A haunting postcard from Pripyat

A haunting postcard from Pripyat

While on assignment in Chernobyl with Bob Simon’s 60 Minutes team, cameraman Danny Cooke captured striking, eerie footage of abandoned towns. Places where people once lived, played and worked are now rusted ruins — relics of a time before the meltdown and evacuation.

In this short film, Cooke has put together video that he shot — from a drone-mounted camera and from the ground — of the city of Pripyat, which sits just a few miles from the damaged, radioactive reactor.

The music in the video was composed by Yevgen Goncharenko, who was the team’s guide during their time in Chernobyl.
