Harvesting Limestone, is a collection his photographs of the famed limestone quarries of his home city. The exhibition gives the viewer a behind-the-scenes look at the process of gathering the natural material of limestone, which we frequently see displayed on so many architectural marvels across the country. It is also a sensitive portrait of the humanity of the often-ignored quarry workers, whose difficult task it is to wrench the stone from the earth.
