The Majestic Marble Quarries of Northern Italy
I usually don’t link to individual articles, but in this case I can’t resist. This week’s New York Times Magazine has a remarkable look at the marble quarries of Northern Italy, that features the excellent photographic work of Luca Locatelli.
I’ve been interested in these scenes since seeing a mini-doc about the men who work in the marble quarries a while back. This feature puts you right inside the stark white landscapes, and follows the marble from quarry to the sculptor's table.
