eBook (PDF), 30 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: Free
In late 2008, photographer John Labovitz spent a month exploring the unique environment of the Convento São Francisco de Mértola in Portugal’s rural Alentejo region. The once-ruined and abandoned buildings of the convent have been restored by its artists/residents, and the ancient Moorish gardens are again lush and prosperous. Sculptures and mechanical creatures roam among cypresses, wild asparagus, peacocks, and the native kestrels and storks. John’s black and white photographs tell intertwining stories of the land, its history, the people, and their art.
