Marchand & Meffre

Marchand & Meffre (1987)

Lives in Paris (France). Works in Paris (France).

Since 2002, photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have been united by their shared passion for contemporary ruins. They capture lost ideals and faded glory by photographing the buildings that have remained behind. Modern ruins or outdated, abandoned buildings, reused for commercial purposes such as shops or markets, are meticulously recorded. Their illustrations are sometimes frightening and alienating, but always fascinating and soothing.
