Every Building Is a Facade

French photographer Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy took photos of ordinary buildings, then digitally erased everything but the front walls. The result is a world filled with facades and devoid of depth. He explains its meaning:

The façade is the first thing we see, it’s the surface of a building. It can be impressive, superficial or safe. Just like during a wandering through a foreign city, I walk through the streets with these questions: what will happen if we stick to that first vision? If the daily life of “The Other” was only a scenery? This series thus offers a vision of an unknown world that would only be a picture, without intimate space, with looks as the only refuge.

The series reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode "Stopover in a Quiet Town." You can see more images from Gaudrillot-Roy's series at Colossal.
