Biography

Photojournalist Michael Forster Rothbart’s work explores the human consequences of environmental contamination. His projects have taken him to Bhopal, India, the Semey Polygon nuclear testing site in Kazakhstan, oilfields in Azerbaijan, and the Canadian Arctic. A Fulbright Fellowship enabled him to spend two years in Chernobyl, photographing and interviewing those who remain a generation after the 1986 accident. He lived in Sukachi, Ukraine, a small farming village just outside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
