Italian artist Stefano Bellamoli created a series of beautiful light paintings set in a marble mine called 'More Light to Come.' Bellamoli used long exposure photography in order to create balls and swirls of light in damp caverns. The striking photos leverage the confined and dark space in order to create surreal images.

Bellamoli took his gear down to a marble mine in Verona, Italy in order to form the pictures. Using exposures of up to 10 minutes long, the artist made light dance around emotionless caves.

Each picture works amazingly well because Bellamoli contrasted two very different things. Elegant swirls of light were placed in harsh and rugged environments. Though the elements of each photo contrast, they also complement each other. The confined area means that the light had the opportunity to bounce off as many surfaces as possible.
