STEAM ECHOES: THE RAILROAD PHOTOGRAPHY OF GLENN BEIER
Bei weiteren Verkäufern erhältlichAlle Exemplare dieses Buches anzeigen
Over fifty years ago, after graduating from the prestigious Art Center School of Photography in Los Angeles, Glenn Beier quietly began seeking out and photographing the last vestiges of steam-era railroading in the western United States. He purposely sought to capture the essence of narrow gauge, shortline and logging railroads of the West. He created images that evoke feelings of the power, massiveness and "aliveness" of the soon-to-vanish steam locomotives working in their natural habitats, and recorded the character and individuality of the people who, on a daily basis, brought them to life and put them to work. This horizontal format book features Southern Pacific steam locomotives, The Sierra Railroad, West Side Lumber Co., Pickering Lumber Corp., Feather River Rwy., Souther Pacific Narrow Gauge, Denver and Rio Grande Western Narrow Gauge, Southwest Lumber Mills, Hillcrest Lumber Co. Ltd., Sacramento Northern, and others. 288 pages of photographs. Fine in fine and bright dust jacket. A new, unread copy. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 31296
