A Steam Odyssey : The Railroad Photographs of Victor Hand Hardback
by Victor Hand
Steam Odyssey: The Railroad Photographs of Victor Hand is the latest in our celebrated publications on railroad photography.
Unlike previous volumes, this book has an international bent: Hand has taken photographs in more than fifty countries over the past fifty-five years.
These 162 black-and-white photographs present a sampling of his best work from around the world and show how the railway is a compelling subject no matter the locale.
An introduction by well-known transportation reporter and railroad columnist Don Phillips explains how Hand got interested in railways and how his approach to the subject developed; extended captions provide historical context.
The book includes an afterword by rail and photography historian Jeff Brouws.
