"UNDER A NUCLEAR CLOUD"

SEMEY, KAZAKHSTAN, JANUARY 14 Nikita Bochkaryov, 18, types with a stick attached to a helmet during a Russian grammar lesson with a teacher, in his apartment in Semey, Kazakhstan Jan. 14, 2009. Being born with Infantile Cerebral Palsy, he cannot speak or control his limbs: he uses a keyboard and a stick to communicate. His life exists on the Internet, where his mind is liberated from his physical disability, enabling him to write stories, letters and poems, and communicate with his loved ones.
