Gorgeous, Magical Photos of the City of Versailles

If you had asked us earlier this week, we might have told you that there was no way for the French city of Versailles to get any more beautiful. After all, Louis XIV didn’t call himself the Sun King because he thought he shouldn’t live like a god, and the countryside was no slouch to begin with. But Jean-Francois Rauzier’s magical manipulated “hyperphotos”, which we spotted over at Faith is Torment, might just have us eating our words — each one shows a beautiful element of the city folded in on itself in multitudes, creating complex wonderlands that seem perfectly encapsulated and infinite all at once. Click through to check out Rauzier’s Versailles Ville series, and then be sure to head over to his website to see zoomable versions of the photos, not to mention more of his great work.
