Description - World's Finest Railway Journeys by Martin Kers

Travelling by train through Australia, Peru, Zimbabwe, Russia, China, Germany, Ecuador, Scotland, Singapore, Switzerland, the United States, Japan, the Netherlands, Italy, New Zealand, Martin Kers shows that even in our efficiency-dominated age, travelling can be so much more than moving from point A to point B. His images reveal, in no uncertain terms, that it's still possible to experience the romance of travel anywhere in the world and to behold the most magnificent landscapes and scenery along the way. With more than 2,000 photographs he documents the world's finest railway journeys. Accompanying the photographs are stories and anecdotes about the history of the train routes. Martin Kers' work has been exhibited around the world, including: Canon Image Center, Amsterdam; The Japan Galerie, Brussels; Ginza, Tokyo; Expo '90, Osaka, Japan; and, Expo '92, Barcelona, Spain.

Author Biography - Martin Kers

Martin Kers was born in Rijsoord, a little village on the river 'Waal'. The riverbanks, the high dike and the flat polder behind it were the playground of his youth. Later on he completed his artistic education at the Rotterdam Academy of fine arts.Since the late seventies he has worked as a professional photographer. The magical reality of nature and the silent landscape of his youth are the greatest inspirations to his photography.Thereby, just like a fine art collector, he searches for colour and composition.Commissioned by various magazines, tourist information offices and other customers he regularly produces travel reports on landscapes, animals and traditional tribes. To this end he travels extensively abroad. a.o. Japan, Tahiti, Patagonia, Zimbabwe, Oman, The Middle East, Far East. Etc.
