Published by Steidl.
Text by Hélène Bienvenu.

The crumbling grandeur of Budapest, in luscious photographs from the duo behind The Ruins of Detroit
Between 2014 and 2016, French photographers Yves Marchand (born 1981) and Romain Meffre (born 1987) visited 400 of the more than 4,000 internal courtyards in Budapest. Their large number and variety of styles incorporating different facets of classicism and modernity make them a remarkable architectural phenomenon—a charming second city within the city.
Marchand and Meffre systematically documented these courtyards, producing a typological series that describes this particular form of collective housing and reflects the city’s tumultuous history, its changing political regimes and economy.
Budapest Courtyards allows us to delight in the crumbling grandeur of the courtyards, and observe the developments and personal strategies of adaptation which they evidence.
“In line with their work on Detroit and Gunkanjima Island, Marchand and Meffre have managed to navigate two extremes at the intimate heart of the Hungarian capital to best superimpose the Budapests of today and the last century, producing an extensive series that offers an untarnished view of this unique heritage.” —Hélène Bienvenu

Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre: GunkanjimaYves Marchand & Romain Meffre: Gunkanjima

Published by Steidl.

Hashima is a small island located off the extreme southwest coast of Japan, about ten miles from Nagasaki. Its dark, warship-like silhouette earned it the nickname of Gunkanjima (battleship island). During the wave of industrialization in the nineteenth century, a coal seam was discovered on the island and the Mitsubishi corporation opened a mine there. Workers settled on the island and the population increased, the small mining town quickly becoming a modern and autonomous settlement. During the 1950s, Gunkanjima became one of the most densely populated places in the world with over 5,000 inhabitants. But after an accident and the restructuring of the Mitsubishi mining project, the mine closed in January 1974. The last inhabitants deserted the island, the connection by boat was suspended, and since then Gunkanjima has become a ghost town. Marchand and Meffre photographed the island between 2008 and 2012.
