While researching our 2014 Winter Collection we have become a little obsessed with everything geological.

This obsession has lead us to a very talented Venice born Professor of Petrology, Bernardo Cesare. He explores metamorphism and melting of rocks, mineralogy, and the study of inclusions in minerals.

What drew us to his work was his extensive use of photomicrographs and macrophotographs.

His website Microckscopia  encapsulates the essence of what he is capturing in one sentence “along with an exciting geological history, every piece of rock hides a universe of colors and shapes, that can be disclosed with a microscope and utilising polarised light…”.

While seemingly niche in his practice his photographs are taken with artistic intent and have been published widely.
