Romain Thiery is a French professional photographer and pianist specializing in forgotten pianos in abandoned buildings in Europe. His “Requiem for pianos” series is a proof of his attachment to piano and photography. The majority of his work focuses on the piano-sometimes depicted with keys missing, sometimes completely dismantled but always sitting imposingly. For this series, Thiery explored several countries including France, Italy, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, and Poland. Through his photographs, the musical notes of these abandoned pianos resound again in these buildings in ruins, giving free rein to our imagination.
