poindexter FORTRAN

Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre photography


(sorry for the text-only post, I didn't want to link to their images. Three sections - abandoned movie theaters, downtown Detroit, and East German industrial ruins for your abandonedplaces viewing pleasure...)

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.
