For 10 years, Thomas Jorion traveled the regions of Italy from north to south, from Lago di Maggiore to Sicily, in search of the palaces that were once the glory of this beautiful country.

Most of these monuments have now fallen into neglect, into ruin. But they are falling gracefully.

After his first two books ‘Silencio’ and ‘Remains of Empire’, French photographer Thomas Jorion continues his questioning of the buildings and places abandoned by humankind.

"My work revolves around the notion of places that create memory and leave behind traces of human activity. I have always been passionate about this subject," he says.

This forgotten heritage unveils a richness of decoration, such as the frescoes that span entire rooms, barely altered by time, sometimes valued and sometimes, conversely, marginalized or neglected.

The presence of a bed or an armchair reminds us that these spaces, now overgrown with vegetation, were one day inhabited.

Thomas Jorion works with a large-format 4x5 inch photographic chamber, and does no staging or retouching. He uses natural light to illuminate the decline of these palaces to show them in all their beauty.
