Description
A student of Aperture magazine founder Minor White, who once told him he possessed "the eye of a poet," David Plowden took his first photographs of railroads after receiving a Brownie box camera at the age of 11. By 1952 he had his first Crown Graphic press camera, but it wasn't until 1960 that he began to pursue his passion for photographing steam locomotives in earnest, just as they were disappearing from the landscape. That haunting sense of an era passing is unmistakable in the 140 black and white images here (reproduced in stunning tritone plates); most were made in the late 1950s and early 60s, though Plowden continued finding his elegiac subjects into the 70s and 80s.
