Photographer Paul Fusco's most iconic piece of work is Funeral Train, a series of portraits of groups of working-class Americans, lining the rail track along the route from New York City to Washington, to pay their last respects to Robert Kennedy's funeral cortege. The subjects in these pictures are tracked down and tell their own stories of that day, providing a snapshot of American life in the late 1960s and the dashed hopes of that fateful day.
