Norman Smith is a self-taught naturalist who has worked for the Massachusetts Audubon Society since 1974. He recently retired as Director of Blue Hills Trailside Museum and Norman Smith Environmental Education Center in Milton, Massachusetts and has taken on a part time role to continue his research on raptors.

Norman has studied birds of prey for over 45 years, including rehabilitating the injured and successfully fostering over 1,000 orphaned hawk and owl chicks into adoptive nests. His ongoing long-term projects include trapping and banding migrating hawks and owls in the Blue Hills Reservation, banding nestling hawks and owls, and doing research on snowy owls and other raptors wintering at Boston's Logan International Airport. He has also traveled to Alaska to study snowy owls in their native tundra habitat. His research work has been published in National Geographic, National Wildlife, Ranger Rick, Yankee, Massachusetts Wildlife, Bird Observer, Birding, Sanctuary, Geo, Nature, Grolier Encyclopedia, Owls of the Northern Hemisphere and Owls of the World.

 

His mission is to use the information gathered from his research to stimulate a passion in everyone he meets to help us better understand, appreciate and care for this world in which we live.

Ian’s career in photography has not stopped since he picked up a camera in high school. For over 20 years he either owned or managed commercial labs throughout the US. Most notably managing NASA’s Photographic Section at Langley Research Center.

 

Since 1997 Ian has dedicated his career to making images full-time with a passion for transportation and nature imagery. Since high school Ian has been working on photographing all of the remaining steam locomotives in the throughout the world. There is roughly 200 remaining in the US and so far Ian has photographed 127 under steam!

 

Under Steam - A Photographer's Quest for Steam Locomotives

 

Once more common than automobiles, steam locomotives have become nearly extinct in North America. Only something like 200 remain capable of pulling trains in the United States and those are all museum pieces. 

West Newbury based photographer Ian Clark has traveled the world, from mundane locations such as Inner Mongolia to the exotic Barnet, Vermont in search of working steam engines. He’s photographed over 125 engines under steam.  

This show looks at steam engines from coast to coast, all in places you can visit. We’ll look at 65 locomotives, with 28 unique wheel arrangements, from 34 different railroads in 19 states.
