Sandhogs TV Commercial

    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. In 2003 Gina LeVay was granted rare access to photograph the "hogs," in the tunnel and at off-site locations. "The Sandhog Project" is a multi-faceted work of photo, video, web, and installation art, which explores the figurative and literal overlay, and mutual dependency of the surface city and this underground world. With the Sandhogs book and accompanying exhibitions, LeVay introduces the public to this vibrant and intricate subculture, bringing their extraordinary, subterranean imagery to the surface for the first time ever.
