TITLE: "Abandoned and decaying architecture: ruined churches"
There are many villages completely abandoned, lost and destroyed forever, in which their houses and churches are in an advanced state of ruin and deterioration. In most of cases, these ruined buildings will be irrecoverable, but all the photographs that I have done of these constructions enclose for me an indescribable beauty and harmony, notably reinforced for their monochrome vision in black and white.
All the churches that I present on this series of photographs are completely abandoned and mostly destroyed and mostly forgotten but while these decaying ruins stand, we will always be able to discover their beauty.
Perhaps one day, when these ruins have been transformed into mounds of rubble and stones, these photographs will be graphic documents that will allow us to remember the beauty of these dilapidated churches.
These photographs are a heartfelt tribute to an architecture that will be lost, since sooner rather than later these churches will be just a memory of what was there
