The People’s Vote Winner:

Timothy Aldridge

I’m Tim Aldridge, 33 year old mature student from Staffordshire university, in my first year of a BA photography degree. I enjoy exploring places many people won’t see, whether it be in this country or abroad. I have a fascination with Chernobyl, the disaster and its history has been something that has peaked my interest for a number of years. This had lead to my traveling alone to the Ukraine several times to go and photograph the exclusion around the power plant.


Many thanks to our Sponsors for helping us make this event happen
