Robert Polidori by Robert Polidori

Book Description

"Transitional States" is Robert Polidori's attempt to visually portray aspects of historical revisionism as seen through various stages of the restoration of the Palace of Versailles. What does it really mean to restore a room? Is it about the precise duplication of something which is now showing the wear and tear of its age, to renew it and make it again as it once was? Or does it involve entirely redefining the rooms epidermis to a completely different state, a state that it may once have had in an earlier epoch? The curatorial decisions that control this process reflect a political will and esthetic tastes which have altered over the period of the restoration. Photographed over a period of 25 years, the transient and temporary situations which the labors of these restorations afford, present temporal paradoxes that engage layers of history and power.

Robert Polidori by Robert Polidori Robert Polidori, Hardback (August 2016)

Offers us with a single large-format photograph of a city block in an improvised, auto-constructed settlement in Mumbai, India. Applying remote sensing techniques that are normally used in space cartography, the author ventures a photographic attempt to come to terms with the phenomena of adjacencies, observing and beholding what is next to what.

Yves Marchand / Romain Meffre by Robert Polidori Yves Marchand / Romain Meffre, Hardback (December 2010)

Over the past generation Detroit has suffered economically worse than any other of the major American cities and its rampant urban decay is now glaringly apparent. This book showcases structures that were formerly a source of civic pride, and which now stand as monuments to the city's fall from grace.
