Photographer's Note

When you mention Longwy you must talk about Vauban. He is said to be the most famous European military engineer. He spent 53 years of his life next to Louis XIV, he built 151 castles and fortified cities, and took part at more than 50 assaults. Longwy was of course built by Vauban and stands out amongst the 151 constructions, as it was one of the 9 cities built ex-nihilo. Indeed, Louis XIV had ordered the destruction of the former Longwy and the construction of another one, more protected and fortified in another place. As a result, the fortress was built according to a modern pattern.
