Photographer: Patrick J. Cashin
Title: Second Ave. Subway Tunnel Bore, New York City, USA

Description: Cashin's dramatic depiction of work beneath New York City appears in these pages for the fifth consecutive year, an unparalleled achievement. At Newsweek magazine 12 years ago, the photographer says he "saw the light" and moved into the dark as a Metropolitan Transit Authority staff photographer. Here he captures a sand hog waiting for the go-ahead to move large boulders in the 72nd St. station excavation. Working with a Nikon D4 in cramped low-light conditions, Cashin prefers tight shots with 35-70 mm and 17-35 mm lenses.

Selected from hundreds that were submitted, this year’s “Images of the Year in Construction” features photographs that best capture the mood and flavor of construction during 2012. Read the full story
