OCTOBER 31 – DECEMBER 5
Railroading: the Hardware, the Landscape, and the People
Recent photographs by Oren B. Helbok
Join us for the opening on Friday, November 2nd at 6pm
Oren B. Helbok grew up in the Bronx and with his father, John (WhereSteamLives.net/john-e-helbok), he experienced some of the early tourist railroad era, going out to “chase trains” from age 2. Since age 6, Oren has made photographs, predominately trains, predominately steam, from approximately coast to coast and in Canada and Great Britain. In recent years he has come to appreciate that “railroading” includes much more than just hardware, namely the landscapes and the people surrounding the trains. Oren writes stories to accompany his photos because, he believes, “sometimes a picture needs a thousand words.” See and read more at WhereSteamLives.net.
