Join author Scott Lothes for a virtual launch of the Center’s newest publication, The Railroad Photography of Donald W. Furler. The 216-page hardcover book presents 200 stunning images, printed as rich duotones and showcasing the emergence of railroad action photography during the final years of steam in the Northeast. The Furler Collection is a cornerstone of the Center’s archive, and we are proud to present this long-overdue monograph.
Lothes will take you behind-the-scenes for both the making of the book and his own fascination with Furler’s photography. Lothes will describe how he went about selecting which photographs to include from the 5,000 in the collection, while sharing a few of his favorites that made the final cut as well as some others that did not. He will also discuss the Center’s archival work, the overall strengths of this collection, and the fascinating industrial landscape of the northeastern United States that formed the backdrop for Furler’s photography.
This event is free, and attendees will have the opportunity to pre-order the book and receive free shipping.
Scott Lothes became the Center’s executive director in 2011, after serving on its staff part-time since 2008. In 2013 he succeeded John E. Gruber as the Center’s president and editor of its journal, Railroad Heritage. Lothes is an accomplished photographer and author, with more than seventy bylined articles in magazines including Classic Trains, Locomotive, NRHS Bulletin, Railfan & Railroad, Railroads Illustrated, and Trains, as well as two front-page travel stories in newspapers. In addition to authoring and editing The Railroad Photography of Donald W. Furler, he is coauthor of Wallace W. Abbey: A Life in Railroad Photography, and he has contributed forewords and chapters to five other books.
