The train photography of Matthew Malkiewicz, an engineer and self-taught photographer, will impress many. Not to mention tempt people to forego the bus or plane for a method of transportation that will transport them back to an age of glamor and mystery. Focusing on older models, the train photography series is charming not only in a 'Harry Potter' sort of way, but also in the spectacular show of smoke that erupts from its engine.
A lover of travel and machinery, it is no wonder that Malkiewicz focused on train photography. He says, "My passion gravitates to the machines of yesteryear, fire breathing monsters that seem to be alive whether you have your hand against the polished steel or you are two bluffs away looking across acres of prairie grass."
