Romain Thiery Captures Broken Pianos As Art Photography

To expose his passion for the art, music and the art photography,  the French artist Romain Thiery captures antique pianos in old abandoned villas all over Europe. Named “requiem for pianos’” the modern series depicts pianos as lonely centerpieces of the photographs within beautiful and forgotten interiors.

“My “Requiem for pianos” series is a proof of my attachment to music and photography, both my passions. Tirelessly practicing Chopin on my grand piano in my house, I am also a photographer who, on one of my urban explorations, captures pictures of this instrument lying there and further intensifying the mystery surrounding the place.”

Thiery’s pianos are usually old broken — reflecting the scruffy walls and the rouches of the curtains, the elegant objects sometimes miss their keys, sometimes are completely destroyed but always sit imposingly. To collect his images, the photographer has explored several countries including France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, and Poland.

About fifty of his photographs are focused on a central object: the piano; sometimes with some of its keys missing, sometimes completely dismantled but always sitting imposingly.
When asked why he chose pianos as the subject of his contemporary photographs, Thiery pointed to the instrument’s “natural elegance.”
