2nd Place 2021 Architecture
Requiem Pour Pianos
What remains of their finery ? Blown away marble, disemboweled fireplaces, torn hangings...
Faced with Romain Thiery’s lens, these great houses have lost their glory. However, lurking in the shadows, astonishing wood and cast iron monsters with lacquered skin display their toothless smiles with ivory reflections. These pianos are the soul of the place, too heavy objects to be moved that the photographer unceasingly tracks down all over Europe. The production of this series doesn’t leave anything to chance. It offers Romain Thiery the privilege of combining his two passions, piano and music.
