A Steam Odyssey
The Railroad Photographs of Victor Hand

Essays by Don Phillips and Jeff Brouws  


A Steam Odyssey

Steam Odyssey: The Railroad Photographs of Victor Hand is a railroad photography book with an international bent: Hand has taken photographs in more than 50 countries over the past 55 years. These 162 black-and-white photographs present a sampling of Hand's 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.
