Each one of us has obsessions, and Ludovic Maillard’s (@ludovicmaillard) is concrete. “Concrete creates extremely uncluttered and raw architecture,” the Parisian photographer says. “This material has an incredible texture which has fascinated me for a long time.” Ludovic began photographing the Boulevard Périphérique in Paris as part of a collaborative project; he spent months examining the complex concrete structure, traveling under the various bridges of the Parisian belt. “For me, concrete is our society’s kind of coral. It is modern civilization’s material, surely one of the most produced materials today. It frames our life in community and tells a lot about our environmental impact.”
