Ken Boyd's approach to the locomotive is unlike that of any other photographer. Every aspect of his photographs, from bolts and conduits to sheet metal and windows is painstakingly evaluated and then digitally edited until each glows with clarity and brilliance. The results are images bristling with details not visible in conventional locomotive photography. Features 150 large-format plates accompanied by detailed captions describing locomotive's history from all over the United States and Canada. Boyd also describes his photographic process, shedding light, as it were, on the method behind his fantastic imagery. Hardcover, 192 pages.
