These photography works by Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre are haunting and beautiful. Looking at these photographs makes me wonder what these spaces were like at the height of their day and who occupied them. I’m longing to hear the sounds that were once echoed. In their words: Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension. The state of ruin is essentially a temporary situation that happens at some point, the volatile result of change of era and the fall of empires. This fragility, the time elapsed but even so running fast, lead us to watch them one very last time: being dismayed, or admire, making us wondering about the permanence of things.
