The Marble District Of Puglia

The work-in-progress observation, by photographer Francesco Luciani, is a photo account of a mining area in the north of region Puglia, Italy where humans have irrevocably worked on the sites originality.

The bane landscape is adapting to the man-made permutation post ‘drainage’, leaving industrial bits behind nature to cohabit with. Luciani uses a large format camera to highlight panoramic views and details of the formation of the rocks. “Left behind are the evidences of the exploitation of resources but also a possible healing found in their abandonment, as the nature begins to re-mold the spaces into new creations of haunting beauty combining the industrial and the natural.”
