Surreal Views of the Marqueyssac Topiary Gardens Photographed by Philippe Jarrigeon

 

In a recent project, popular photographer Philippe Jarrigeon visited Château de Marqueyssac located in France to complete a photography assignment of the wonderful and serene topiary gardens that were developed in the 17th century. Developed by Bertrand Vernet de Marqueyssac towards the late 17th century, it finally took shape in 1860s when there was thousands of malleable boxwood trees planted by the then owner Julien de Cervel, so that they could be carved into a desired shape when they grow up. On this day, the same garden boasts of a whopping 150,000 trees that have been cut into a required shape along a 5 kilometer path in which public can walk. You will be surprised and amazed when you take a walk here and it is a different experience altogether.
