This photographic journey is based on Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities. Sylvain Heraud's work is broken down into seven series of photos illustrating seven of Italo Calvino’s cities. The photos depict various aspects of the chosen imaginary cities, enabling the reader to visualise them. The collection was therefore named Invisible Dwellings, in parallel with Invisible Cities.

 The photographs in the book were taken in various places built and inhabited by Man. The six‑year‑long project covered regions throughout the world, and resulted in photos that defined the architecture of the societies in question and offered a window into the past.
