Taken in the lace museum in Burano, these ladies are the last of the city’s lace makers. Their work is so fine and they sit quietly stitching all day. A significant piece of lace can take years to make, and thus once a machine was designed that could do this work, the market for hand stitched lace disappeared. A document to a passing skill.
I took a trip to the Science Museum to look at a photography exhibition (which is excellent, btw). It has some great structures to make images of. This is an atomic structure which is suspended overhead.
