This picture is part of the documentary project Still There, a dark tale investigating the territory around the Nuclear Plant of Garigliano, a small radioactive land in South Italy. Despite being permanently turned off in 1981, the Nuclear plant is still there, nothing has been removed and its dead body has given life to a number of terrible legends. “Still there” is a visual documentary testifying the paradox of living a rural life threated by the presence of a ghost expanded in earth, water and air.
