A Passion for Trains: The Railroad Photography of Richard Steinheimer
by Richard Steinheimer
Publisher's Description
TO THE TRUE RAIL FAN, Richard Steinheimer is an authentic hero, the best of the best. A pioneer in train photography, Steinheimer lived through and documented the railroad's heyday and its decline. He is one of very few photographers who appreciate the aesthetics of all locomotives, from steam engines to the latest diesel-powered behemoths. He has a particular fondness for the landscape of the American West, and many of his images situate trains in the larger geography and culture of the time. Known for taking pictures at night, in bad weather, and from risky perches on top of moving train platforms. Steinheimer has an enormous creativity and productivity. This, the first full-length celebration of his work, presents 160 of his images, with an introduction by Jeff Brouws.
