Trains and Stations – A Fetish in Fifteen Photos

The way my mother tells the story, I was smuggled into France as a six-month old, wrapped in swaddling clothes and hidden among blankets in a crowded sleeper car. Whether the tale is an embellishment I can't say, but I do know that that early episode instilled in me an early love for train travel. One that would finally and fully blossom when I moved back to Europe 38 years later.
