Photographer's Note

For me, with my background working in documentary film, part of a good photograph (mine or others) is the element of story. And the one behind this shot, the first in a series I will post from Italy, is a funny one.

This guy works in a marble quarry in Brescia, in northern Italy (where we were shooting part of a film.) At the time, he was responsible for laying down the lines to dynamite out enormous blocks of 'marmo' (marble.) It is a very dangerous job, one that can cost your life or limbs if a mistake is made.

This guy, however, didn't want anything to interfere with his suntan, so here you see he is working with even his "tidy whities" rolled up to avoid tan lines as much as possible ;)
