15 of the most gorgeous abandoned castles I came across while around the world
Dimitri “Jahz Design” is my name, and I’m a French artist. I earned a degree in graphic design. Architectural ruins and history have long piqued my curiosity. I started becoming interested in urban photography of abandoned historical buildings in 2013. An old cemetery of warships was the location of my first investigation.
I explore the world in search of abandoned locations in urban ruin. I wish to share with you some of the most stunning castles that have been abandoned today.
I explore the world in search of deteriorating regions. I have traveled to more than 2,000 locations worldwide since 2013. I hope to raise awareness of our civilization’s ongoing transformation into fleeting memory through my photographs.
I always take a group of other photographers with me when I go. I do not advise traveling alone because you are not protected from mishaps or unpleasant encounters.
Following in the footsteps of the Soviet Buran spacecraft program in Baikonur, my most recent discoveries (Kazakhstan). I was named a Manfrotto ambassador in 2017. I was asked to serve as their ambassador in 2018 by the ultra-wide angle lens company Irix, which is based in Switzerland.
Three galleries—Envie d’Art Paris in Paris, Galerie Gaa in Nantes, and Eleven Art Gallery in Rennes—represent my images. Additionally, I published a photography book titled “Broken Silence” that has 64 of the stunning abandoned locations I photographed.
