Jeff Whetstone: Post Pleistocene

Jeff Whetstone: Post Pleistocene. Photographs by Jeff Whetstone. "...Jeff Whetstone spent a good part of 2007 underground, creeping through the caverns and passageways that form vast networks of caves in Tennessee and Alabama. The North Carolina-based photographer took an assistant with him, along with loads of battery-operated equipment, water, food and supplies, often staying beneath the Earth's surface for days at a time. The result of these subterranean journeys is "Post-Pleistocene," an impressive series of large-format photographs that is so strangely gorgeous it takes a while to acclimate your eyes - not to mention your mind - to what you're seeing." - LA Times
