Haunting Photos Of Abandoned Pianos Scattered Across Europe

Roman Thiery is a photographer and pianist from France. In his series "Requiem for Pianos", he scours the deserted corners of Europe in search of forgotten pianos.

"As a pianist myself, emotion takes over when I discover an abandoned piano," he says. "This is the aim of my art: my two passions are then united in one and the same feeling."

To complete this series, Theiry found himself traveling through France, Italy, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, and Poland.

Sometimes the pianos are in terrible disrepair with keys missing and collapsed legs. But for Thiery, when capturing their portrait, he can still hear their keys ringing in the silence.

As a pianist myself, emotion takes over when I discover an abandoned piano.

"My “Requiem for pianos” series is a proof of my attachment to music and photography, both my passions," the photographer says. "Tirelessly practicing Chopin on my grand piano in my house, I am also a photographer who, on one of my urban explorations, captures pictures of this instrument lying there and further intensifying the mystery surrounding the place."
