A Steam Odyssey

The Railroad Photographs of Victor Hand

November 2013

Victor Hand (Author)

With an Introduction by Don Phillips, With an Afterword by Jeff Brouws


Stunning photographs of steam locomotives on all six continents.

Steam Odyssey: The Railroad Photographs of Victor Hand is the latest in our celebrated publications on railroad photography. Unlike previous volumes, this book has an international bent: Hand has taken photographs in more than fifty countries over the past fifty-five years. These 162 black-and-white photographs present a sampling of his 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.
