The French artist NPier photographs places where time seems to have stopped. Fascinated by abandonment, NPier believes that beauty in decay demonstrates the fragility of life.
NPier researches sites extensively before visiting them. He always looks for places that appear to be anchored in a different reality than our present day-to-day. In “Wicked Way,” the light, the complex composition, and the textures of the interior represent a recollection of forgotten splendor. The photograph captures a perfect moment of stillness within the perpetually moving stream of time.
