Passionate about urbex, the practice of visiting abandoned urban places, Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have devoted 15 years of their lives to traveling the United States in search of movie theaters. In the course of their wanderings, the photographic duo visited hundreds of sleeping theaters, sumptuous buildings with triumphant sets, like so many vestiges of a forgotten Hollywood. Abandoned, buried in dust, transformed into supermarkets, metamorphosed into chapels: these theaters rediscover the glitter of their baroque and Art Deco influence. More than a quest, a human adventure that has given rise to several exhibitions hosted by Galerie Polka, of which “Epilogue” is the latest installment.
