Photographer's Note

Eroded by angry winds and the repeated onslaught of the tides, these breakwater poles have protected the cité corsaire since the 17th century. Reaching 7 metres in height, these strange totem poles form part of the coastal silhouette of Saint-Malo’s coast. Nearly three thousand of them proudly stand up to the sea, spanning over 3 kilometres, from the Cale de l’Éventail to the Dyke of Rochebonne. No one would ever dare doubt their usefulness.
