FORGOTTEN PALACES

Screen Shot 2013-01-31 at 6.47.49 PM

In  this series Forgotten Palaces, French photographer Thomas Jorion has captured deserted palaces and stunning villas abandoned by their owners for various reasons. Mostly shot in Italy, these poignant images underlie the ephemeral, the fragility of human existence. These forgotten palaces reflect a singular aesthetic between decay and eternal beauty, quiet places where the sound of our footsteps still resonate, where melancholy is ever-present, a poetry of absence and silence.

Thomas Jorion photographs urban ruins and condemned buildings, spaces that no longer serve the purposes for which they were built. He lives and works in Paris.
