Some of best photos of the year 2011 for Reuters

“I made this image on a trip to Prypiat on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in a shop at the central square which used to sell goods ranging from gas ovens to musical instruments named Raduga (Rainbow). I've been to this place a number of times but it still feels weird to be in a town devoid of people which greets you with eerie silence. Masks are not needed there these days although radiation levels remain above normal.”
