It is obvious that he would hook me with his latest work Quarries (I've been surrounded of granites and marbles since I was young, my parents are in the business), but visiting his website I've also found those wonderful pictures of Urban Mines.

I've become aware of Mauro Restiffe's work while I was browsing the book Vitamin PH (Phaidon), which I really recommend. He is one of the few Brazilians who are in the list of those who had created new perspectives in photography on the last years. These pictures are an example of something that it's recently (the inauguration of Brazilian president Lula in 2003), but it was shot in a way can be placed in any time of history.
