I know, that's saying a lot...but I can say no less.
I thought I was familiar with Joel's work, which recently has gained attention for a post-modern look at railroading (Railroad Noir: The American West at the End of the Twentieth Century (Railroads Past and Present) with Linda Niemann) and the Fall 2010 issue of the NRHS Bulletin dedicated entirely to his photographs of (mostly) deteriorating railroad depots accompanied by Alexander Craghead's scholarly essay on the depot's place in the American landscape. I was also familiar with much of his work that was more in line with what we would consider to be straightforward railroad photography, yet infused with a unique and recognizable perspective.
But I wasn't ready for this.Read more ›
The book is not a guidebook but an extended photographic journey through the survivors of the steam era.Read more ›
I was going to say something that would give the reader a bit of insight into Joel Jensen... but after reading the foregoing comments, anything I'd say would just demonstrate how inarticulate I can be.
Try this; read out loud (emphasis on "loud") the reviews already written, BUY THE BOOK and wait with anticipation for it's delivery. In about a week, you'll be rewarded. Sit down with some Jim or other beverage and tell others to leave you alone.
Did I say, "Buy this book."; well... stop messing around!
