Sorry poppy, but skip refused to get off the train. She was riding high when I left. I forgot to add that the photographer is the same one who took that famous photo of an Afghanistan young woman with the big beautiful eyes. It was on National Georgraphic.

Steam Train, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.1983 This photograph recorded in 1983 the contrast between a mighty technology – the steam locomotive – and the transcendent aesthetic of the Taj Mahal, with its light-reflecting surface. The steam engine, once an important symbol of Indian national culture, is now a thing of the past. So in addition to staging a powerful rhetoric, McCurry’s photograph captures a lost moment in culture. Even the tracks near the Taj Mahal have now been removed. The character of McCurry’s work, then, lies in the power of its record and its rhetoric. The photograph of engine set against architectural splendour holds fast an idea – a way of thinking about contrast and culture that can be carried forward to other images in other times.
