After the August 2011 earthquake damaged the iconic structure, photographer Colin Winterbottom began documenting the building and some of the hand-carved architectural elements that were affected by the quake. Gothic Resilience, a collection of his images from the restoration and recovery process, will be on display at Long View Gallery through February 10.
