Versailles by Robert Polidori
Versailles by Robert Polidori focuses
on the powerful beauty of the Palace of Versailles.
A selection of 35 large-scale photographs
that Robert Polidori captured over a span of 25 years
addressing the conservation of the lavish palace.
Robert Polidori explores the idea of presenting
the interior of a room as a means of insight
into the soul of those who inhabited them.
With this project the photographer challenges
the idea of restoring the palace to its original state.
For Polidori, Versailles is not so much genuinely old
but a constant re-fabrication of the old
in order to keep the past alive.
On show from 16th January to 27th March 2011
