"[In Limestone] Koudelka gives full reign to these tendencies to make brooding pictures that emphasize the quarrying of limestone not as rape, but as a noble and civilizing act."--Parr & Badger
"Josef Koudelka has opened my eyes to the beauty of these landscapes. Nature is far stronger than any of us. His work is a moving account of nature's infinite capacity for asserting itself"--from Jean-Pierre Berghmans's introduction.
