EBRD EXHIBITS THE LONG SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident, the exhibit The Long Shadow of Chernobyl with 30 large prints by Gerd Ludwig opened at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Headquarters in London on April 14, 2011. The EBRD is in charge of collecting the finances for the Chernobyl cleanup and the construction of the New Safe Confinement, totaling $2.2 billion. Due to the current $850 Million funding gap, the EBRD was eager to exhibit Gerd Ludwig's emotional photographs and confront an audience of ambassadors and bankers from countries that pledged to contribute to the cleanup, to the reality on the ground.
