Brutal trabajo de Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre, según ellos no se trata sólo de tomar fotografías de las ruinas, sino de mostrar la memoria de la humanidad … Me recuerda a la pelicula «Soy legenda» donde se ve la ciudad destrozada y la desolación dejada por el ser humano.

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.

Photography appeared to us as a modest way
to keep a little bit of this ephemeral state.
