Romain Thiery

Romain Thiery is a professional French photographer and pianist who specializes in forgotten pianos in abandoned buildings in Europe. His “Requiem pour pianos” series is proof of his attachment to piano, travel and photography. The series consist of approximately 50 photographs with a focus on pianos. Thiery delicately captures the beauty of each piano always sitting imposingly with some dismantled or missing its keys. 

To achieve his “Requiem for pianos”, Romain Thiery explored several countries including France, Italy, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, Romania, Spain and Poland. Through these images, the musical notes of these abandoned pianos reason again in these buildings in ruins, giving free rein to our imagination.
