Since his start photographing railroads in the Deep South in the 1940s, J. Parker Lamb has spent over 50 years capturing timeless photographs. His work across North America documented the transition to diesel as the steam locomotive faded into the pages of history. Although he captured a changing American industry, he simultaneously evoked the human element by showing the people affected by it. Lamb's outstanding knowledge of the industry, as well as his camera, unveil the mystery of the railroad to anyone who views his photographs.

This oversize hardcover treasure, chock-full of stunning full-page black-and-white images from an unparalleled railroad photographer, makes a beautiful coffee table book for any railroad enthusiast. The Railroad Photography of J. Parker Lamb presents a masterful overview of Parker's lifelong work, analyzing his artful camera techniques, captivating subject matter, and photography spanning decades.
