Grégoire Cachemaille, 1978, photographer

After moving to Berlin in 2006 he made a habit of getting lost in the city and wandering through the many deserted spaces of the urban landscape, absorbing the distinctive layers of the city’s recent History. That’s when his passion for the forgotten and the derelict took shape. After he spent a full day exploring a former Soviet military complex in the city outskirts, he was definitely hooked. Ever since this experience, he has been capturing the strange but appealing beauty of abandoned locations around the world.

His work questions the patrimonial value of abandoned structures, not only from an architectural point of view, but also as witnesses of the history of the communities and powers that erected them. As chronological relics stripped of their elementary purpose, they become objects of contemplation and introspection.
