The artist

Photographer Aurélien Villette questions the meaning and patrimonial value of ancient abandoned buildings. While the latter represent an era in architectural history, they also bear witness to the specific history of a country, a region or a civilisation. The remains left in these sites are the chronological markers of an era. Ruins become both objects of contemplation and meditation.  ... See more See less

All artworks

Architecture marks all of our lives, our lifestyle, beliefs and cultures, from our birth to our death and beyond. All of this variety leaves me awestruck, every day

About the artwork

If Aur?lien Villette's subjects are inspired by buildings in ruins, these are not however always ruins left by their inhabitants. They hark back to the golden age of a bygone era and most of them symbolise a heritage that will most likely be destroyed. The photographer roams the world in search of the spirit he finds in each structure. His wanderings have led him to focus on countries that are marked or were once marked by a totalitarian regime, or those still at war. The ruins that he photographs are perpetually evolving subjects and his images therefore do not always represent their final state, since the structures will surely have a future

ALFREDO SANCHEZ

Alfredo Sanchez was not predestined for photography. Born in Mexico in 1954, he studied law and took up a career in the private sector. “My free time was spent playing tennis, horse riding, and let’s not forget my favourite pastime: photography,” he says. Much later, towards the ...

PEDRO JARQUE KREBS

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...
