Tristan Hoare is delighed to present Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre: Industry.
This will be the second major show at Tristan Hoare of the French photography duo's work, following on from their Ruins of Detroit exhibition in 2012.
Over the past twelve years Marchand and Meffre have developed a rigorous approach to their work which has produced staggering results. Shooting with a large format, custom made camera, taking advantage of natural light and using long exposures, the images embody the unique atmosphere of each location.
Their photographs retain a formal quality and are conceived as a document, giving the viewer a glimpse of a buildings former glory. “Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension.”
