There’s very little that’s natural about these rock formations from photographer Tito Mouraz’s series Open Space Office. He spent 2 years documenting the rock quarries near his home in Portugal and the result is both jarring and strangely beautiful.
Mouraz on his work:
I find it difficult to transmit on film the personal experience and all that one feels and observes at these immense and torn sites, where silence is felt in an unnatural and intimidating way. It is a well know fact that an image cannot replace reality. That is why I chose to include parts of a hidden horizon or an incomplete landscape, in this way suggesting a different perspective, since the proximity to these sites which grow in the opposite direction to what is normal, are usually unobserved by the spectator almost giving them the chance to rebuild them.
