Robert Polidori

Montreal-born photographer Robert Polidori is best known for his architectural studies, in particular interpreting rooms as 'memory theatres'. He is a staff photographer for The New Yorker and his book, After the Flood (portraying images of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina) caused much controversy, as one photograph showed a deceased person in a bed. However, it was these magnificent large-scale color images - shot in Versailles - that caught my eye...
