Photography by Kevin Scanlon
Kevin Scanlon was born in Pittsburgh and has spent the last thirty years documenting heavy industry and railroads across the country. He is drawn to subjects such as steel mills (both working and abandoned), the coalfields of southern West Virginia, and our dwindling railway systems (focusing primarily on railroads in Appalachia). His images capture an important historical era that spans the end of the twentieth century into the new millennium. Kevin Scanlonís photographs have been displayed at the Silver Eye Center for Photography as well as appearing in various railroad-themed books and magazines, and on the covers of the literary journal Paper Street.
