Haunting photos of dust-covered pianos in abandoned, decaying buildings

Category: Photography

Romain Thiery is a photographer from Montpellier, France that travels the world taking eerie, yet beautiful, photos of abandoned buildings. One of his projects, ‘Requiem for Pianos’ is a collection of images of old and ruined pianos in abandoned and dilapidated builidings.

His images tell a story about the music that might have once been played in the decaying buildings. He has visited various countries including Belgium, Italy, Germany, Poland and the Ukraine.

“The series is a project that is really close to my heart. At first people always wonder whether they are paintings or photographs. I try to make the atmosphere very peaceful and the textures and light as natural as possible. People tell me they feel immersed as if they can hear some notes of the music still. I am often asked why the piano but this instrument has been with me since I was very young and as a piano teacher is an integral part of my life today.”

In some rooms, things have been stolen and the place has been ransacked, but the piano is still there, showing its nobility and power.
