Bryn Griffith, whose work is currently on show in the PHOTOGRAPHY! exhibition at Bucks County Museum is talking about his visit to Chernobyl.

Mr Griffiths is an award-winning photographer who creates images for top brands and corporations and his advertising work can be seen in magazines, brochures and billboards across the world.

In complete contrast to his commercial photography in 2014, Mr Griffiths travelled to the city in Ukraine to capture the corrosion, decay and dereliction of the post-nuclear deserted buildings.

The resulting images won him a globally respected Hasselblad Masters Award and are featured in the Hasselblad Masters book.

Mr Griffith will be telling the story on his journey to Chernobyl tomorrow night (Tuesday) between 6.30pm and 8.30pm at Bucks County Museum.

Tickets are £7.50 with students able to get in for £5.

The evening includes a private view of the ongoing PHOTOGRAPHY! exhibition and free refreshments from 6.30pm ahead of the talk at 7pm.
