Haensch Wins 2008 Award

Olaf Haensch

The theme for the 2008 Awards Program was “sense of place” as related to the railroad environment. 33 photographers submitted nearly 150 images for consideration, and the high quality of their work resulted in a record number of awards. The Center honored a total of 15 photographers, who impressed the judges with their rich and varied interpretations of the theme; imagery ranged from night photos of a German steam railroad, to sweeping panoramas in both industrial and natural settings, to close-up studies of railroading’s minutest details.
