All development and progress come with deep loss and destruction. Most of those go unrecorded. Like ways of life, rituals, practices, our earth is, of course, the most to suffer over the last many decades, a decline for which there seems no help. Jayesh Sharma, always moved by that which passes and will not return, came across this quarry wherein he saw the destruction of earth, devastation crying for help. From his trip and this profound experience that he had, have emerged a series of photographs, beautiful and haunting, which remind of what horrors we as people are doing.
