"Over a period of two years, Josef Koudelka traveled through the quarries of the Groupe Lhoist in Europe and America. His camera leads us through our sites and Josef shows us that the industrial exploitation of deposits -- whilst providing the society we live in with an indispensable product -- can also bring a fascinating dimension to the landscape. Born less than a kilometre away from a quarry, I had always felt that industrial sites had nothing but a functional aspect and were devoid of any aesthetic interest. Josef Koudelka has opened my eyes to the beauty of these landscapes. Nature is far stronger than any of us. Josef Koudelka's work is a moving account of nature's infinite capacity for asserting itself."
