In Memory: Jim Shaughnessy.

Jim Shaughnessy signs his book ‘Essential Witness’ on visit in December 2017.

Yesterday, August 7, 2018, my friend Jim Shaughnessy passed away.

Jim’s photography and writing are some of the best known in American railroad circles; over the years he has been a strong influence on my own work.

He and I often discussed three interests we had in common: Ireland, railways and photography.

Jim had been visiting Ireland since the 1960s. In 2005, Jim visited me in Dublin and I gave him a walking tour.

He will be missed; his photography and writing lives on.
