Along the Tracks: O. Winston Link is a 2014 exhibit at the Akron Art Museum which says: "Featuring photographs from the museum's collection and several loaned works, the exhibition will examine Link's technical accomplishments and innovations as a photographer as well as his in-depth documentation of a quickly fading mode of transportation and way of life in rural America." Also see Wikipedia entry. Accessed 3/17

Tracks: The Railroad in Photographs from the George Eastman House Collection is a 2011 exhibit at the Figge Art Museum which says: "Organized by the George Eastman House, this exciting exhibition explores 160 years of railroad and photographic history. Both trains and photographs emerged around the same time in history and can be credited with changing how we perceive the world. Trains offered access to places that seemed impossible to reach by foot while photography" Accessed 2/17

Trains That Passed in the Night was a 2000 exhibit at the Sheldon Museum of Art which says: "Not only did Winston Link use a different photographic technique, his motivations were different from street photographers. His interest, in all his work, was to create as precise and careful a record as possible of the scene being photographed. Using lessons he learned from his commercial advertising photography, Link had less interest in documenting life as he found it than in creating images of life as he (or his clients) might wish it to be." Viewers may download the exhibition brochure.
