Steam train fans will go loco for stunning pics at Worthing gallery
5:20pm Thursday 18th July 2013 in News
Steam railway enthusiasts are in for a treat at an exhibition of striking photographs at Worthing Museum and Art Gallery.
Award-winning Midhurst photographer David Hill is showing a selection of his work taken on his travels around the globe.
The majority of pictures show the harsh northern Chinese winters, depicting the locomotive working in grim, gritty industrial settings engulfed by smoke and steam.
There are also studies of workers being tormented by giant machines in conditions where winter temperatures regularly hit 30C.
Mr Hill, who frequently travels to China, said: “China is just about the only country in the world where the steamers still truly work commercially.
“There are probably only 250 locos remaining and they are spread far and wide across the vast country.”
The exhibition also offers a selection of work on other subjects in both black and white and colour photographs.
The selection ranges from serene Saharan sand dunes to the molten lava of a Hawaiian volcano.
The exhibition runs until July 27, is closed on Sundays and Mondays, and is open from 10am until 5pm.
