Sandhogs

© All Photographs by Gina LeVay

Sandhogs is an original portal to the unseen characters and systems of underground New York—revealing the essential “art form” of mining in the modernized city. Excavation of City Water Tunnel #3 began in 1970. For each mile tunneled, approximately one Sandhog has lost his life in a mining related accident. In 2003 Gina LeVay was granted rare access to photograph the “hogs,” in the tunnel and at off-site locations. Here are images from her newly released book, Sandhogs, published by Powerhouse.
