Publication Date: 2015

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - What happens to buildings when they are no longer needed or have outlasted their original purpose They are either lovingly restored so they can be used for something else--or they fall into ruin, where they remain as silent witnesses of a bygone era. French photographer Aurelien Villette has made it his mission to trace these dilapidated buildings--some completely forgotten by history--and capture their incomparable beauty in wondrous color photographs. Whether his subject is a Christian chapel, an erstwhile theater, or the events center in a former Communist country, Villette brings the spirit and pathos of the place once embodied back to life. At the same time, the ruins in his evocative photographs are stylized to create cultural heirlooms of the various periods and countries where they are located. The technically perfect photography allows the viewer to infer various architectural influences of earlier times, making this volume a very special historical and cultural documentation. Allow yourself to be transported by the breathtaking beauty of these images and dive into a former era where time stands still. 176 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch.
