Get lost in Philippe Jarrigeon’s photographs of mazes

Philippe Jarrigeon is a photographer known for his still life and fashion photography. However, more recently he completed a series for Pin Up magazine of an insanely alluring garden at the Château de Marqueyssac.

The in-depth landscape images stemmed from Philippe’s research while working on the Bush album cover for Snoop Dogg. Stunned by the charm of the area, Philippe and editor of Pin Up Felix Burrichter were “convinced that we had to show and speak about this magical bush experience,” says the photographer. Originally set up in the late 17th Century the garden “truly began to take form in the 1860s when owner Julien de Cervel planted thousands of malleable boxwood trees which were carved into fantastic shapes”, making for a fantastical shooting location.

The change of scenery for the photographer is displayed in the excitement and intrigue these images create. “It was a pleasure to get out from the studio!” Philippe says. “This garden is a surreal place of art I was really interested to get there. I’m obsessed by the art of topiary now.”

Philippe has several editorial contributions coming soon including Double and Buffalo Zine but will begin “work on a show with my ECAL students during Paris Photo Fair” over the next coming months.
