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.  ...

Un hôtel abandonné dans la montagne au japon. Situé à la hauteur d’une ancienne station funiculaire désaffectée. Il a fallu marcher dans la forêt sous la pluie, le lendemain d’une forte tempête qui avait fait beaucoup de dégâts. Sauter par-dessus les balustrades de la station funiculaire en aval du site en me soustrayant aux regards des voyageurs et du personnel puis disparaître dans la végétation en découvrant sur mon chemin ces pancartes « DANGER SNAKES ». Trop tard pour faire demi-tour. Trop tard pour regretter. L’envie de découvrir ce lieu perdu était trop forte.

About the artwork

Like time capsules, testifying to a parallel world and perfect for enabling the mind to wander and ponder, Francis Meslet?s melancholic images brave the passage of time, making way for silence after the memories left behind by human inhabitation. In these deserted places, no more than the rustling of the wind can be head through a broken window or the sound of water dripping from a dilapidated ceiling. These silences nonetheless invite the spectator to slip into these well-guarded and mysterious places captured by the photographer and attempt to bring to life that which has been forgotten. The image No Time for Tea was taken in the autumn of 2014 in Japan. According to the artist?s description, it is a tea parlour in a mountain hotel that was abandoned when an earthquake struck the region in 1995. Built in 1929, the hotel was only accessible at the time via a funicular railway. It is now only possible to get there on foot via steep, small paths.
