Not Trains - Photographs!,
This review is from: The Call of Trains: Railroad Photographs by Jim Shaughnessy (Hardcover)
The risk with this book of outstanding train photographs by master of the craft Jim Shaughnessy is that it only gets the attention of rail and train enthusiasts. They, of course, will be getting a fine collection of pictures but the wider world will be missing a stunning collection of photographs. Shaughnessy captures the American railroad in all its glory and in an age now long gone. His pictures reflect a variety of landscape, city scenes, rural outposts and the workers that made the system run. All are captured with stunning clarity, great composition and excellent subject matter and his work deserves to be appreciated by the wider audience. There are hours to be spent just passing the time by looking at this collection and it will be worth every minute.
