O. Winston Link: The Last Steam Railroad in America

February 3 - March 13, 2010

Charles A. Hartman Fine Art is excited to present The Last Steam Railroad in America, a dramatic selection of images from the late O. Winston Link’s ambitious series of photographs that chronicle the final years of the Norfolk & Western Railway in the late 1950s. With these visual documents, Link set out to capture the obsolescence of the steam locomotive and, with it, the railroad towns, lifestyle and labor force that the train culture had supported. Not only did he pioneer new techniques in night photography to achieve great cinematic effect, he also released high-quality recordings of the fleeting sounds of the steam railroad.
