Josef Koudelka

Limestone (Lhoist), Limited Edition

With introduction by Jean-Pierre Berghmans

Over a period of two years, Josef Koudelka traveled through the limestone quarries of the Groupe Lhoist in Europe and America and chronicled the sites of the industrial exploitation of stone deposits. While offering Western society an indispensable ecological commentary, the documentation also provides a fascinating dimension to the landscape. "Josef Koudelka has opened my eyes to the beauty of these landscapes. Nature is far stronger than any of us. His work is a moving account of nature's infinite capacity for asserting itself," as quoted from Jean-Pierre Berghmans's introduction.Text in English, French and German by Gilles A. Tiberghien. Includes a biography and captions written by the plant managers
