The Frioul archipelago faces the Gulf of Marseille, and is made up of the Ratonneau, Pomègues, If and Tiboulen islands. Frioul is an archipelago not only in space but also in time: these islands have been the scene of apparently unconnected events that form a mysterious constellation. In 1516, King Francis I ordered the construction of a fortress on the island of If that would be used as a prison in the 17th century. The most famous prisoner he housed was Edmond Dantès, the main character in The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. In one of his dungeons you can still see the hole he made in the wall to try to escape. On January 24, 1516, the first rhinoceros ever seen in Europe landed at Ratonneau. They were sending it to Pope Leo X, and Francis I, King of France, rushed there to admire it. On the way to Rome, the ship was engulfed in a violent storm and sank. Albrecht Dürer would later make an engraving from a drawing that was sent to him. On July 31, 1944, Lufftwaffe pilot Horst Rippert shot down a Lightning P38, which fell into the archipelago's waters along with his unfortunate pilot, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Decades later, a fisherman fishing near Pomègues found a bracelet in his net with the pilot's name engraved on it. Ghost Stories is a photographic series that weaves together all these events that occurred in the same space but at different times.
