Description:
Large format color photographs of abandoned places by Thomas Jorion.
"I travel the world with one idea in mind, to find and show timeless islands. I choose to enter closed and abandoned places formerly alive, and often places of leisure or prestige to capture and share them. My fascination for the esthetic of abandoned places is the extension of an older tradition. The Romantics enjoyed strolling amidst the ruins of long lost civilizations. Centuries earlier, painters such as François de Nome, Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Hubert Robert dedicated part of their work to these forgotten places. Somehow my photos are part of this process".
