Versailles by Robert Polidori

Uncategorized

 

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
