“Grotto of Mary Magdalene (Sainte-Baume)” is a contemporary photograph by José Nicolas in black and white. It is a limited edition silver print.
It is in the heart of the Sainte-Baume mountain, in this natural cave dug by erosion (baumo, in Provençal) that Saint Mary Magdalene is said to have lived thirty years of her life.
Mary Magdalene preached in Marseilles, and then settled in this steep mountain, in the cave that has since been named after her. From then on, she was able to devote herself to prayer in solitude.
This natural light shot is a great technical achievement. It perfectly captures the spiritual atmosphere of this place, which has become one of the oldest pilgrimage sites in the Christian world.
“Grotto of Mary Magdalene (Sainte-Baume)” is sold in its off-white mat and we offer two framing options:
– high quality Nielsen frame with classic glass for an elegant and contemporary look;
