The photographer Robert Polidori has spent 28 years capturing cultural spaces and crumbling cities throughout the world. In Chronophagia(Steidl, €38) the palace of Versailles, the rooms and streets of Havana, New York tenements and shelled buildings in Beirut are just some of the structures on which he lavishes his attention. His eye for colour and the terrible poetry of urban decay is always impeccable.
