The powerful red electric engines of the Glacier Express easily climb the snow-covered Swiss Alps. Ancient steam engines of the Guayaquil & Quito Railway labor up the slopes of the Andes in Ecuador. Luxurious passenger carriages from another era amble across the great western desert of China at dusk. On the other side of the globe, the engineer of a sleek Amtrak engine waves a casual good-bye out the window of his massive machine as it leaves the station. TRAINS is a photographic journey to the world of railroads. For five years, photographer Graeme Outerbridge traveled the globe by rail photographing everything that caught his eye-hulking engines, stations both lonely and bustling, dark tunnels, high-speed expresses, railroad workers, signs, signals, and the landscapes that the trains traversed. His images reveal the universal language of forms and colors that trains have created, and are as evocative as a lonesome whistle in the night. 225 photographs in full color, 10 1/4 x 9 3/4". GRAEME OUTERBRIDGE is one of Bermuda's most distinguished photographers and a three-time winner of the Gold Award of the Bermuda Lily Design Awards. He is a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and past chairman of the National Liberal Party of Bermuda, and his work has been widely exhibited. He has published two previous books, including Abrams' Bridges. Oblong cloth in very good plus dust jacket. Not paginated. Illustrated. Solid copy. Full refund if not satisfied.
