Join editors Alexander Craghead and Scott Lothes for a virtual launch of the Center for Railroad Photography & Art’s new publication, Continuity & Change: The Lure of North American Railroads. The book explores the photography of contemporary railroading in North America through 230 photographs and 13 essays that dig into topics on railroads and nature, pathways of commerce, passenger railroading, heritage activities, workers, international connections, and how the passage of time marks both railroads and photography.
Craghead and Lothes will take you behind-the-scenes in the journey of both developing the concept of the book and realizing the final production. Continuity & Change: The Lure of North American Railroads was made possible due to the Center’s expansive and talented community of image-makers who answered an open call for submissions to illuminate the relationship of railroads and photography from the nineteenth century to today.
This event is free.
