This collection of photographs, and artifacts tells the story of citizens who spoke up against the nuclear power industry, who refused to be nuclear neighbors, and who fought for years to stop construction or close reactors in their backyards.
The photographs also introduce us to the victims of nuclear power, among them the children who developed cancer, and other grave health problems, even generations after the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl.
This collection is currently on loan to Northeastern from the artist, with the artifacts courtesy of Special Collections and University Archives at Umass Amherst libraries.
