Laurent Bergez founded the marble craftworks in Saint Jean de Luz, South-West France, in 1939. At that time business was mainly concerned with cutting gravestones and other funerary art objects. In 1973 his daughter Francette and her husband Etienne Retegui took over the business and modernized the production plant. In 1999, the founder’s grandson, Claude Retegui, took the helm of the family business. Based on his extensive knowledge as a building and civil engineer, Claude created the 3D Marble Technology department which has developed techniques that enable the stone to be considerably lightened while at the same time ensuring great solidity and strength.

German photographer Julian Faulhaber seeks out newly constructed public places (supermarkets, apartment complexes, factories, theaters, parking lots) and photographs them in the fleeting period between their completion and use. Using long exposure times and available lighting (often fluorescent), he produces candy-colored, semi-abstract images of these impeccable manmade spaces, devoid of nature and human beings. Though they seem unreal, with their garish coloring and eerie emptiness, Faulhaber’s photographs are un-manipulated. By angling his camera and tightly framing the scenes before his lens, he emphasizes the rigid geometry of the built environment, which seems oddly unfit for human beings. [ via ]
