Follow photographer Frédéric Chaubin as he embarks on a unique, century-spanning journey through Europe. With images of more than 200 buildings in 21 countries, Stone Age presents the history and architecture of the continent's most spectacular medieval castles 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 world. Forerunners of Brutalism, these castles value function over form and embody the raw materials and forms that would define much of architectural history. Shot with a Linhof camera, the collection is the result of five years of travel and research. Complete with a handy map and explanatory essay, its castles tell the story of 400 years, unfolding through the feudal Middle Ages to the 15th century. A photographic study of both decay and resistance, Stone Age traces the history of some of these unique structures that continue to enchant their audiences today and occupy a distinct and mystical place in our collective imagination.
