"Photography reveals the visible as well as the invisible. For several years, I have been photographing abandoned spaces, in transit, destructured, testifying to a past. They all bear the scars of human history. The vestiges are transformed into ultimate invitations to remember, to search for lost time. The shots are taken in the "4x5" room, a slow process, which refers to the idea of the slow but inexorable decomposition that strikes these places. The approach becomes a form of photographic archaeology."
A specialist in architectural photography, Géraldine Bruneel began her career as a photographer-reporter for the Gamma agency, covering conflicts around the world. This led her to spend three years in Beirut, then three years in Madrid, where she developed a pronounced taste for travel.
