Sandhog photographer Gina LeVay

There is an exellent interview with Gina LeVay on Photoshelter. I recognized some of her Sandhog photos and discovered her other project, Las Toreras- Female Bullfighters. In 2003, I read a story titled, City of Water, in the New Yorker and have been fascinated by the idea of sandhogs ever since. Sandhogs, by the way, are guys who go 800 ft. deep into the Island of Manhattan to maintain, replace, and secure our water tunnels. I am quite interested in our water systems as you can see from my ongoing Water Management series and am in awe of anyone who goes the depth for their project.
