More Awards and Press for The Long Shadow of Chernobyl
The Long Shadow of Chernobyl continues to receive acclaim worldwide. First the German-language edition, then the international editions of VICE published an interview with Gerd online, coinciding with the 29th anniversary of the disaster. LensCulture featured an in-depth review of the book as well.
The book has also been honored with three additional awards. It received the Silver Cube for Photography/Book from the Global Art Director's Club, the Federation of European Photographers named it the Documentary Photo Book of the Year, and the One Eyeland Awards gave it a silver medal.
