"The View from the Train". 2017.


I travel between Sacramento and the Bay Area with some degree of regularity...

...sometimes by train, and sometimes by car. The scenery between these areas is often beautiful, and I have tried to capture elements of that beauty in this gallery.

However, any travel between these two points also reveals aspects of the land that do not appear on any postcard: the encroachment (and occasional decay) of the industrial and technological worlds, and the increasingly desperate plight of society's homeless and displaced.

This gallery contains imagery from two ongoing series that have resulted from that travel:

"Passage" contains imagery of the scenery along I-80.

"Scenes from a Train" contains imagery from Amtrak's Capitol Corridor Train.
