Capturing Bertha & the Biggest Tunnel in the World through Film and Photography
Photographer Catherine Bassetti captured one-of-a-kind photos and videos of the SR 99 tunnel project, from hundreds of feet up in the air to hundreds of feet underground. Bassetti’s images capture the larger-than-life machinery, the rescue and return of the cutterhead, the emergence of Bertha, and the complete disassembly of the tunnel boring machine. Along the way, she got to know the many different people who came together from around the world to work on the transportation megaproject. Bassetti will join HistoryLink (’s Jennifer Ott for a discussion about the many stories she documented with her cameras and a sampling of still images and video clips. Limited number of FM system and neck loop Assistive Listening Devices are available for this program.
