I'm a French artist, and my name is Dimitri "Jahz Design." I graduated as a graphic designer. I have always been interested in history and architectural remains. It was in 2013 when I developed my interest in the urban photography of heritage in disuse. My first exploration was an ancient cemetery of military ships.

I travel the globe looking for forgotten places in urban decay. Today, I want to share with you the most beautiful abandoned castles in the world.

How is it possible that this masterpiece is abandoned?

I travel the globe looking for places in decline. Since 2013, I have visited more than 2,000 places around the world. With my photos, I try to draw people's attention to our civilization which is in a constant mutation to ephemeral memory.

I never travel alone, I have several fellow photographers with me. I do not recommend traveling alone - you are not immune to an accident or a bad encounter.

My latest discoveries have taken me in the footsteps of the Soviet Buran spacecraft program in Baikonur (Kazakhstan). In 2017 I became Manfrotto ambassador. In 2018, Irix, the brand of ultra-wide angle lenses of Swiss origin, proposed to me to become their ambassador.

Like the design !!!

My photographs are represented by Envie d'Art Paris gallery in Paris, Galerie Gaïa gallery in Nantes and Eleven Art Gallery in Rennes. I've also released a photography book "Broken Silence" in which one can find 64 pictures of beautiful abandoned places that I took.

That's Chateau Miranda in Noisy. It was torn down by its asshole owner despite the best efforts of activists to try and save it.

You can picture the carts and foot traffic on the way to the market.

Looks a lot like Castello di Sammezzano, in Tuscany

Jahz Design: Your pictures are fantastic! They’ve given me new fodder for my “personal fantasy hour”. Do you have any info on the castles’ histories? The families that owned them? Or specific location? I’d like to look a couple of them up; namely, #1 & #8. Very good job!👍🏽👏🏽👏🏽💗

Not abandoned ... Château Mennechet. Designed in 1880 exclusively to display the owner's art collection, Alphonse Mennechet de Barival who died in 1903 before it was finished. It's been protected as a Monument Historique since 2011.
