About This Project

This series of photographs was taken in June 2014. They are photos of the Carrara marble quarries, in fact, they are photos taken inside the Michelangelo quarry where the sculptor cut the marble for most of his works. It’s a tribute to this great artist on the occasion of the 450th anniversary of his death.
They are photos of landscapes that play on the slight color contrasts that turn from white to beige and brown. The real peculiarity of this quarry is that the landscape is not static but changes every day, because every day new pieces of marble are cut, slag is accumulated, rock walls are blown up.

This aspect of mutability seems to me to be the specific characteristic of that fascinating territory, eliminating the concept of fixedness from landscape photography but, rather, projecting it into a dimension of immediacy and decisive moments, in time and space.
