The Ruins of Detroit by Yves Marchand

Hello everyone! just wanted to share with you yet another photo project that left me in an awe! I think the project is best described by artists statement:

“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.”

Below is the selection of my favourite photos, you can see the entire collection and read more about the project here

Enjoy!

One thought on “The Ruins of Detroit by Yves Marchand

  1. It’s so interesting that you post this right now. I originally wanted my latest blog post look to be based inside an abandoned house. I left it in the background of my image though, as I was too afraid to enter it…

    I was eyeing houses and homes back in my home country and a fact was brought to my attention, probably 30 per cent of Vilnius consists of abandoned houses, construction sites, hospitals, factories…. Well, to be honest, I am sure the percentage perhaps is not that high but there are so so many of them. It saddened me deeply.

    I still want a photoshoot inside though 😀 So ghostly!!!
