Stunning photographs of steam locomotives on all six continents.

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. 150 photographs

Victor Hand has traveled the world photographing railways for the past fifty-five years. His work has been published widely in railway periodicals and books. He lives in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Jeff Brouws is a fine art photographer and part-time writer who has nine books to his credit, authoring five on railroad photography alone. He has been published in Trains, the NRHS Bulletin and the R&LHS Quarterly. A book of his own photographs, Approaching Nowhere (also from W. W. Norton) was published in 2006. His photographs can be found in major institutional collections around the country including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, Princeton University Art Museum, Harvard’s Fogg Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Book Description Norton, 2013. Condition: New. Victor Hand began publishing his photographs in the American Trains magazine in the early 1960s and, like many enthusiasts, was inspired to record the last of steam as it was taken out of service. Over the decades he travelled further and further afield to find working steam and this portfolio presents a collection of his meticulous large-format, black-and-white photographs, from America in the 1950s to Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and China up to the 1990s.
