Here is an excerpt from Yves Marchand’s and Romain Meffre’s artist statement:
“The state of ruin is essentially a temporary situation that happens at some point, the volatile result of change of era and the fall of empires.”

Born in 1981 and 1987 in the Parisian suburbs, Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre began to photograph seperately in 2001. They began to work as a duo at the beginning of their project on the ruins of Detroit in 2005.
