“By chance I was walking down the track from Agra Station. I could see the Taj [Mahal] in the background of this enormous railyard, so I waited, and suddenly they started moving these steam locomotives in front of it. You can feel the continuity between past and present.” (Steve McCurry quoted in ‘Go Behind the Lens with Steve McCurry’, Rubin Museum, 17 December 2015, http://rubinmuseum.org/blog/go-behind-the-lens-with-steve-mccurry)

In 1983, his mind filled with stories from Paul Theroux’s The Great Railway Bazaar (1975), McCurry began his epic journey across India by rail, a trip which spawned his Rail series. The current work, Taj and Train, in which a symbol of colonial industrialisation is contrasted with the seventeenth-century Mughal mausoleum, perfectly captures the juxtaposition between tradition and modernity that McCurry sought in his photographs of India.
