Polish photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski traveled to Fukushima, the site of the nuclear disaster, and obtained permits to enter a 12.5 mile area known as the Fukushima Exclusion Zone. Here he proceeded to take some pretty amazing photographs which resemble movie sets that are post apocalyptic in nature.

Here’s what he says about the sight:

“It is not earthquakes or tsunami that are to blame for the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, but humans.”

Check out the chilling photos he took…
