Location: Cato Gallery


13 May 2021 - 24 May 2021
Railwaymen is a series of portraits featuring some of Melbourne’s longest-serving train drivers, photographed in sites of historical significance across the city’s railway network.

Captured on black and white 35mm film using a 1964 Rangefinder camera, the photographs depict drivers with decades of railway industry experience amongst iconic Melbourne sites, including the Flinders Street Station ballroom and gymnasium, Newport railway yards and workshops, and several historical stations across the city’s metropolitan railway network. These powerful and intimate portraits reveal the human faces behind Melbourne’s railways, and capture the knowledge and wisdom of decades of experience.
