Art in ruins.

I just came across the work of Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. Both are photographers who study societal change by capturing images of the buildings we create, abandon, and forget. Three exhibits are mentioned on their website: The Ruins of Detroit, Eastern Industries, and Theatres. The way they use colour and light, focusing on various aspects of the architecture in their subjects really brings out the best in these run-down landmarks.
