"This book is a collection of 44 stunning black-and-white photographs by Joel Leivick of the marble quarries and quarry workers inand arround Carrara, in the province of Tuscany, in northern Italy. [...] The photographs of the Carrara quarries lay bare a vast and dramatic landscape as imposing as the Grand Canyon, reaching down from the mountains like a carefully orchestrated disaster of immense and inhuman size. But this vastness, hardly picturesque, is the result of steady attrition at the hands of man, a canyon carved by centuries of labor and ambition." - from the rearcover. Very good. 40.00
