O Winston Link

O. Winston Link
Steam, Steel & Stars

Soulcatcher Studio is proud to celebrate the life and photographic achievements of O. Winston Link with this special retrospective exhibition. .

Renowned critic and former Director of the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, John Szarkowski, called O. Winston Link "one of nature's noble men, and a legitimate American genius and nut." Link took it upon himself to record the glorious last days of steam railroading in America from 1955 to 1960. Photographing primarily at night, he would use dozens to hundreds of single-use flashbulbs to create the desired effects. In the process he created some of the most spirited and memorable images of rural American life ever captured on film. He was truly a master of the art of light and shadow. .O. Winston Link passed away near a train station on January 30, 2001 at the age of eighty-six.

Please inquire about specific images that are of interest to you. .These original silver gelatin print photographs are very limited and in many cases we only have one print in stock. .They are signed by O. Winston Link in pencil on the back of each unmounted print, and also stamped with the Link Studio stamp in ink.
