Abstract Views of the Marqueyssac Topiary Gardens

For the newest issues of PIN-UP, photographer Philippe Jarrigeon hit the Château de Marqueyssac in France to shoot the unbelievable topiary gardens found there. The area was first formed in the late 17th century by Bertrand Vernet de Marqueyssac but actually began to take form in the 1860s when owner Julien de Cervel planted thousands of malleable boxwood trees which were carved into incredible shapes. Today the sprawling gardens have over 150,000 trees cut into unique geometric forms that can be explored by the public through 5 kilometers of walkable paths.
