Our society once erected singular and surprising buildings in all domains, including industry. Many cities keep traces of this glorious past but despite a seeming awakening towards the architectural inheritance of the XIXth and XXth Centuries, numerous unexpected monuments are today on the way to rot or, the worth, being destroyed. Since some years, perpetual demolitions led us to make pictures, a way to keep a little bit of this vanishing history.

Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre from France are masters of wide-angular color interior photography, and Photography of the Unexpected and Neglected Architecture is their theme.

Recently they went to Detroit, and the result is now on show in Paris: Les Fabuleuses Ruines de Detroit - An exhibition related to Motown's forgotten monuments at the Galerie Kennory Kim, featuring enthrallments like the United Artists Theater.
