In 1957, an explosion occurred at the “Mayak” nuclear plant near the city of Kyshtym in the Russian Urals. Although the following year the Western press reported news of a nuclear accident in Russia, the Soviet government refused to acknowledge the event. The Techa, the nearby river, was already notorious for its nuclear contamination, although dozens of villages depended on it. Chris Bierl followed the river upstream, allowing himself to be led to many other poisoned and exploited places. The series ‘A One Storied Country‘ shows the irreversible effects of anthropological encroachment on natural landscapes.
