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

AURELIEN VILLETTE

About the artwork

"Abandoned sites fascinate me and have become essential points of interest on my travels. But beyond my fascination for them, the sites that I photograph must satisfy criteria that serve my artistic approach. This criteria is aesthetic and technical, such as natural lighting, textures, worn materials and perspectives. Some architectural elements are particularly interesting to me, like staircases, which testify to the evolution of a society and a culture. Besides aesthetics, geopolitical criteria comes into play. I seek to demonstrate that the abandoned nature of these sites is intimately connected to human activities and to historical context. I strive to understand the evolution of the world, of politics, people and their destinies." Aurélien Villette
