The sleek marble face in contrast to the coarse hillside
Assignemnt: to document the site of In Between Stone and Air
The site is an abandoned white marble quarry in southern Spain. Approaching the pinnacle of the mountain from a distance, the marble feels like a secret, buried in the earth and forgotten. Only glimpses are visible for afar.
The jagged cuts from the extraction machinery form a zig-zag stepping terrace, as if the mountainside is being broken into still giant facades. Large rust colored veins run through the pure white like streaking rain drops.
The warm earth tones against the cool distant landscape
The exposed marble face towers over the surroundings
