1. O. Winston Link Biography. “Link, as much historian as artist, employed his technical skill as a means to document his subjects rather than as a means to fame or fortune. Indeed, he discovered shortly after starting his visual documentation of the [Norfolk & Western] railroad that no one was interested in photos of an old technology. However, Winston had also recorded the sounds of the steam engines and found that his high quality sound recordings were quickly gaining recognition. He released the first of six recordings, ‘Sounds of Steam Railroading,’ in 1957, years before his N&W photographs began to garner attention. It was only in 1983 that his photography began to receive recognition as works of art.” (Submitted on June 8, 2013.)
