This Could Be the Best Opera House Porn Known to Man

New, 1 comment

From cathedral-like indoor pools to the Louvre, New York-based, French-born photographer Franck Bohbot has traveled the world shooting cavernous architecture that's laced with manmade frills and utterly devoid of the living things that put them there. His theater series is perhaps his most interesting, if only because old European opera houses are (1) straight-up gorgeous and (2) particularly eerie when taken away from lights, sounds, warmth, and human bodies. Above: Théâtre Montansier in Versailles, France, which opened in 1777, making it just a year younger than the United States.

? Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

? The theater at Petit Trianon in Versailles.
