Abandoned Places still furnished. Marks of life, of an existence in places where time seems to have stopped from one day to the next. Questioning is the keyword here.
In the heart of these places, we attend to real scenes of lives that have remained frozen in time. This feeling of sudden abandonment is disturbing. The imaginary linked to haunted houses, urban legends and nightmares are highlighted in these time capsules.
A dilapidated facade, shutters which crack, and a terrible silence are the elements of the spectacle which are offered to the individual who dares to venture near such structures. Those desolate scenery are invigorating and characterized by a true aesthetic of chaos. Chaos which through the play of lights and shadows, offer poetic scenes.
The residual atmosphere of these places brings us to the subjects of lost souls and ghostly silhouettes that wander aimlessly. Have you ever wondered what it must feel like to be that silhouette, that shadow that sends shivers to passers-by ?
To live a life of a long wandering in a world ravaged by a sudden and violent event. To be lost in a colorless dimension where the palette of colors to paint this world of nothingness seems limited. To survive in a universe of ruins where time has stopped during your journey to the other dimension.
Visiting these decadent buildings gave us a similar experience. Plunged into a deafening gloom and into decayed but poetic and picturesque rooms, we had become these silhouettes. Horrific silhouettes lurking in the middle of the night.
A true hymn to melancholy, these places evokes both despair and decadence. Whatever their true stories, we cannot help but imagine chivalrous tales all ending with a tragic fatality: the fall of a kingdom.
No need for a time machine when walking through a sealed door allows you to go centuries back in time.
This series is our testimony of lost memories and beauty of decadence.
