The artist

A graduate in Design from the École des Beaux-Arts de Nancy in 1986, early in his career Francis Meslet was a designer, but soon turned to advertising when he joined several advertising agencies as an artistic director. After 30 years spent questioning the creative concept and studying images in all his compositions, he is now a creative director. Francis Meslet wears several hats; he is notably a renowned photographer who does not hesitate to roam the world in his spare time, searching for abandoned sites, sanctuaries where time seems to have stopped after humans have evacuated them. He thus brings back captivating and melancholic images of his travels to the other side of the world, which were recently exhibited at the Urban Exploration Photography Days in La Bresse, in the Vosges, as well as in La Douëra de Malzéville, near Nancy.  ...

FRANCIS MESLET

About the artwork

Like time capsules, Francis Meslet?s images of industrial buildings withstand the passage of time. In these deserted factories, on these abandoned sites with restricted access, no more than the rustling of the wind can be heard through a broken windowpane. These heavy silences invite the spectator to slip into these huge cathedrals of steel and let their imagination run wild. Beyond the dusty light and unpleasant odours, a melody strikes up in visitors? minds, as they attempt to imagine the rhythm of the metallic sounds mixed with the voices and shouts of the people working here. From the series Silence and Oblivion , this image depicts an abandoned petrochemical site in Italy. An industrial Guggenheim or deserted Tower of Babel? As we enter the bowels of the building and find ourselves confronted by its architecture, our surprise joins that of the photographer and we cannot help but wonder about its design. Why was such a massive tower built without interior floors and with only a narrow footbridge appended to the internal walls?
