Mast Brothers Chocolate Factory, Brooklyn

Unbenannt

While surfing through various wine and food pages this afternoon, I stumbled on this beautiful photo report of the Mast Brothers Chocolate Factory in Brooklyn, New York. They claim to be New York’s only “bean to bar” chocolate manufacturers – meaning that they process the whole chocolate beans at first in order to extract the precious cocoa butter before they confect chocolate specialties.
Tom Selby’s pictures capture the unique work atmosphere at their factory in a nearly mystical way. You would nearly have the impression they’re from a past century where passion, talent and experience were the essential success factors and not some high tech machines from our modern times. Of course the long beards and stoic expression of the 2 brothers inevitably fit into such a picture.
But whatever way those photos are being interpreted – they definitely catch one’s attention.
