… from the French photographer Laurent Kronental.

French photographer Laurent Kronental made these photos for his exhibition ‘Souvenir d’un futur’. They show the Grand Ensembles — Paris’s large residential projects built during the housing crisis between the 1950s and 1980s. These collapsing buildings are located in the suburban area of the city.

“Marked by the passing of time, these massive, gray buildings, like their elder residents, bear the signs of long lives. And yet, in these wrinkled faces and cracked walls, in the energy of the bodies and of the facades, emerges the pride and pulse that we thought had disappeared.”
