My name is Dimitri “Jahz Design” and I’m a French artist. I received my diploma as a graphic designer. I’ve always been fascinated by history and architectural ruins. In 2013, I became interested in the urban photography of heritage in neglect. My first foray was inside an old cemetery of military ships.

I traverse the world hunting for neglected urban deterioration. Today, I’d like to show you some of the most stunning abandoned castles in the world.

I traverse the world seeking locations that are in decline. Since 2013, I’ve traveled to over 2,000 different countries. I attempt to attract people’s attention to our civilization’s ongoing transformation to ephemeral memory through my photographs.

I never go alone; I always travel with a group of photographers. I would not advocate going alone since you are vulnerable to an accident or a negative encounter.

My most recent discoveries have led me to the Soviet Buran spacecraft program at Baikonur(Kazakhstan). In 2017, I was appointed as a Manfrotto ambassador. In 2018, Irix, a Swiss brand of ultra- wide angle lenses, asked me to be their ambassador.
