What is it about the piano that evokes such nostalgia and strong emotions within us, even after centuries as a household instrument? French photographer and classical pianist, I believe the piano is “deeply rooted in the depths of our culture” and sought to explore the instrument from an original angle. I made my life’s mission to combine my two biggest passions and set out to find abandoned houses and castles around Europe where old pianos had been left behind. The series that emerged from my work is called “Requiem pour pianos”.
