Frédéric Chaubin. Stone Age. Ancient Castles of Europe


A Legacy in Stone

Castles and fortresses of medieval Europe

Follow photographer Frédéric Chaubin as he embarks on a unique, century-spanning journey through Europe. Featuring images of more than 200 buildings in 21 countries, Stone Age presents the history and architecture of the most dramatic medieval castles of the continent in an unprecedented collection.

Building on the success of his foray into Soviet design with CCCP, Chaubin once again documents the afterlife of highly rational structures that seem out of place in a modern-day world. Precursors of Brutalism, these castles value function over form and epitomize the raw materials and shapes that would go on to define so much of architectural history.

Shot on film with a Linhof view camera, the collection is the outcome of five years of travel and investigation. Complete with a practical map and explanatory essay, its castles tell the story of 400 years, unfolding through the feudal Middle Ages into the 15th century.

A photographic study of decay as much as endurance, Stone Age traces the history of some of these singular structures that continue to enchant their audiences today and that occupy a distinct, mystical place in our collective imagination.

Lahmes Fotoalbum von staubigen Burgen

Anonymous,2 luglio 2022
Langweilige Sammlung von Burgen-Fotos mit knapp gehaltenem Text. Meist nur ein Foto und ein 3-Zeiler, das in einem großformatigem Buch. Da wäre definitiv mehr gegangen. Für den einen mag es hohe Kunst sein, doch, diese flauen Fotos machen keinen Spaß, das einzige was hier einen gewissen Reiz hat, ist die bunte Schrift im Titel. Nicht kaufen.

Oozes quality

Heavyweight, big format presentation makes the photographic imagery jump off the page. Highly recommended.

Soy un amante de los castillos y tengo varios libros sobre ellos. Me apetecía tener uno bien editado y con fotos de calidad para poder mostrarlo encima de una mesa de centro en el salón de una casa de campo. El libro comprado cumple de sobras y me gusta hojearlo y recrearme con esas maravillas de la arquitectura.

Amazing amusement page by page
