Label
Based in Mexico City, Fernanda Sanchez-Paredes travels the world to photograph landscapes, cities and buildings in various transitional states. This image depicts a 2013-14 project to restore the roofs and facades of the Chateau de Vincennes, a former royal castle and prison on the outskirts of Paris, France. The white-clad scaffolding that envelopes the building creates a sense of mystery that leaves viewers wondering what is happening inside the wrapped building and why.
