Center for Railroad Photography & Art Winners

Every year, the Center for Railroad Photography & Art holds a contest that attracts some of today’s finest and most creative photographers. Those who placed in this year’s program will have their photographs displayed at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden into 2023. The Museum’s goal is to showcase not only Colorado’s rich railroad history, but also the many creative people—around the world—who keep the spirit of railroading alive and well in the 21st century.

Beebe and Clegg: Their Enduring Photographic Legacy

This exhibit focuses on Lucius Beebe who—joined in 1941 by his life partner Charles Clegg—introduced railroad photography and the world of railroading to popular audiences in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Employing dramatic images and sweeping promotional strategies, this dynamic duo created more than 30 books on railroading and Western Americana, demonstrating that the railroad serves the nation as an icon of the American experience.
