French photographer Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy has created a fascinating photo series titled Facades. It allows us to imagine a world where buildings are ‘reduced to purposeless slabs of matter, lined with windows leading nowhere’.
Commenting on the project, Gaudrillot-Roy says, ‘The facade is the first thing we see, it’s the surface of a building. It can be impressive, superficial or safe. Just like during a wandering through a foreign city, I walk through the streets with these questions: What will happen if we stick to that first vision? [What] is the daily life of ‘The Other’ was only a scenery? This series offers a vision of an unknown world that would only be a picture, without intimate space, with looks as the only refuge’.
