Karen Healy: A Palette of Rust and Dreams
Anchored in North Carolina’s Piedmont region, A Palette of Rust and Dreams is a vignette of a train journey as seen through the eyes of a traveler. Since 2015, Karen Healy has boarded the Piedmont and the Carolinian–two trains that travel between Rocky Mount and Charlotte, North Carolina–to document the people and communities touched by North Carolina’s railroad.
These intimate photographs and audio recordings explore the space between destinations as they depict travelers and railroad workers bearing witness to a world and landscape both ephemeral and historic.
