The Palindromo Meszaros 'The Line' collection captures the plight of a disaster-stricken town in Hungary as a result of the 2010 toxic waste catastrophe.

What you see is what you get -- The Line features no digital editing of any kind, showing you the unfortunate aftermath of the spill. Truly painting the town red, you can see the material scarring trees, buildings and roads, as a bloody reminder of the 9 people who died and thousands that were evacuated. The aluminum company in Western Hungary saw one of its alumina containers burst, loosening a sea of radioactive and caustic sludge on the area.

The Hungary toxic spill incident leaves striking evidence in its wake, almost like a modern Pompeii.
