Scenes from a Moving Window
by W. Scott Olsen


Scenes from a Moving Window is a project where I traveled around the perimeter of the continental United States on Amtrak: Fargo to Seattle to Los Angeles to New Orleans to New York to Chicago and then back to Fargo. The goal was to stay on the trains, getting off only when schedules did not allow an immediate connection. The goal was to produce a travel narrative—in images and text—that sought to discover a new understanding of landscape, history, and personal experience within the deep tradition of train travel—when the country is racing by the window.
