David Kahler – The Railroad And The Art of Place

Sunday, April 9   |   2:00 pm

With The Railroad and The Art of Place, David Kahler has achieved something novel in the world of railroad photography book publishing.

Kahler’s tough unflinching views have a grittiness not normally associated with railroad enthusiast photography. His unsanitized realism shows what actually abides in the landscape, and the trains are never divorced from their surroundings. Working with a…
