'O. Winston Link was a commercial photographer and train enthusiast from Brooklyn whose mission in life became photographing and mythologizing the last days of steam on Virginia's Norfolk and Western Railroad line. Link was never paid a penny but with the Norfolk and Western's co-operation he was able to photograph the steam trains at night using an arsenal of synchronized flashes. He captured some of the most dramatic images of trains in American art, but ironically was virtually unknown until his work was discovered and put on the cover of The Sunday Times Magazine in 1982 while I was Picture Editor. I subsequently showed his work regularly at my gallery and with private dealer Robert Burge exclusively published the only edition of his color work in 1993.' - J.D.
