The work of Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre

The work of Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre leaves me speechless, i have hardly ever seeing this kind of work with other photographers. Ruins in all its splendor.

“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.” – Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre.

I can hardly call this post about interior design, yet i could´t help to share this photos with you.
