Many photographers seek to capture beautiful ephemeral moments with their camera lens,.
French photographer Thomas Jorion is drawn to a more eternal timeline.
Using an analog 4×5 camera, Jorion focuses on abandoned places: spaces and structures lost to the nature and time.
In his photographs, once majestic buildings that are now largely forgotten are given the same careful composition and attention that more currently-engaged spaces might receive.
His solo exhibition explores the abandoned villas and palaces of Italy.
