For more than a quarter of a century,  the city of Pripyat has stood dormant as the result of the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine. In that time, the area and its surrounds have sat still, steadily preserving a moment in time.

Despite the scenario, it's also the perfect place for photographer Timm Suess, who specializes in worn-and-torn settings like the towns within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

Part of Suess' continuing Chernobyl series was recently published in The Atlantic, with a special selection showing the slowly decaying interior of a long-forgotten hospital and its surrounding environment.

More of Suess' work can be viewed at his blog, "Many Faces of Decay", where he sporadically posts about interesting content like notable Kickstarter projects and timelapse videos shot with a variety of image capture and recording devices.
