Nature Illustrations From Chernobyl

Cornelia Hesse-Honegger, 65, is a Swiss-born scientific illustrator who spent 25 years working in the scientific department of the Natural History Museum at the Unibersity of Zurich.

Since 1967, she has visited 25 nuclear sites around the world, most notably Chernobyl, after disaster struck in 1986. Her work meticulously depicts the deformed mutant insects and other creatures found in radioactive zones. Her large body of illustrations are disturbing yet beautiful, as noted in Fast Company.
