Artwork description:

I visited this Soviet nuclear missile base in 2010 during the ‘Abandoned?’ journey. On this journey Geppe and I travelled 39000 km in a camper van through 24 European countries investigating and documenting abandoned places.
Our Ukrainian friend Tolia showed us this secret, abandoned nuclear missile base hidden in a forest 30km from Khmelnytsky. It's a huge site with airfield, heliport, barracks, factories etc. When you go deeper into the forest you find where the nuclear misiles were kept. 5 of them were always mounted ready to launch simultaneously at the West at a flick of a switch. The missiles are long gone but the place still has a very strange, negative feeling about it. Most of the infrastructure is underground where it is pitch black, everything is very rusty, there is water dripping everywhere and it is freezing cold.
The design is printed with Epson UltraChrome Pro pigment inks, for longevity on Hahnemühle Photo Matt Fibre 200 gsm fine art paper. There is a white border for easy handling. It is signed and numbered as coming with a certificate of authenticity. It is protected and bubble wrapped before being rolled in a cardboard postage tube.
