Show Cave Photography

Los Angeles based photographer Austin Irving’s ongoing photography project takes a look at the phenomenon of ‘show caves’ across the world, examining the intersection of the breathtaking natural beauty and the artificial intervention- man-made lighting, exit signs, walkways. The images highlight the┬ácontrast and tension that exists between these slow-forming geological anomalies and the human augmentations that can be equal parts beautiful and grotesque.
