Beauty and The Beast

Robert Polidori is a photographer who seems to be able to find beauty in disasters. I am fascinated by these images and the contrast. He has some amazing pictures of Versailles along with some of Chernobyl and New Orleans after their historic disasters.
Take a look and be as amazed as I was.

Yes, excellent photography - the beauty and the destruction of same (and isn't there always some beauty in destruction - sad, but true)?

Wow, how haunting... I feel as though I shouldn't find these beautiful, but I do...

I have really enjoyed perusing your blog and was struck when I came upon these photos. With New Orleans as my hometown, I can relate to the beauty in destruction but it brings back some sad memories. Robert Polidori has captured the timeless cycle of life and death. Fortunately, New Orleans has been reborn out of this despair.
