Romain Thiery

Professional photographer pianos & heritage

About

Professional photographer specializing in abandoned heritage and pianist, the work of Romain Thiery has been constantly evolving and has been exhibited several times nationally and internationally. He now exhibits permanently in art galleries. A real passionate person, Romain is fortunate to be able to meet the two artistic worlds that are close to his heart: photography and pianos.

The places he is looking for have to meet the criteria that his artistic process requires. They have to be at the crossroads of two artistic worlds: music and photography. He is travelling all around Europe to find abandoned pianos.

Requiem pour pianos

“As a pianist myself, emotion takes over when I discover a neglected piano. This is the culmination of my art: my two passions are then united in one and the same feeling.”

Requiem pour pianos by Jean-Luc Pouts

The “Requiem for pianos” series is a proof of Romain Thiery’s attachment to music and photography. He says that both are his passions. Tirelessly practising Chopin on his grand piano in his workshop-house, he is also the photographer who, on one of his urban explorations, captures the picture of an instrument lying there and further intensifying the mystery surrounding the place.

About thirty of his photographs are focused on a central object: the piano; sometimes with some of its keys missing, sometimes completely dismantled but always sitting imposingly. Impressive and incongruous, it is there. It is where, not so long ago, grace, luxury and a respected novelty used to reign.

At first, led astray by the natural aesthetics of the king of the instruments, one could have seen some kind of romanticism that could be at odds with the photographer’s powerful other works. In the latter, the picture does it job, despite the amazing work on the light: the spectator feels a sense of disquiet -despite the beautiful representation. It is obvious: what used to be no longer is.

In a mess that leads us to ask ourselves a hundred questions, a dust-covered piano is erected and its nobleness is striking, its grandeur lies deep within the basics of our culture. The art of the photographer is to show us this arrogant beauty that relegates everything else to the background.
