"O. Winston Link is one of the most singular photographers in the medium's history...He made these complicated pictures, requiring the forethought and logistical planning of a movie director, by using banks of synchronized flashguns to illuminate large areas of the landscape and to give him enough depth of field on his large format camera, plus a shutter speed fast enough to freeze a moving train. This book, made for Norfolk and Western Railway in Virginia, might not be large, but many of Link's classic images are there, fine reproduction."--Parr & Badger
