The BBC televised a bio on O. Winston Link.. The Photographer, His Wife, Her Lover
Paul Yule's film reveals the truth behind one of the great art scandals of modern times. O. Winston Link's images have become icons of 20th century Americana. But behind the veneer lies a different story.

Link's photographs depict the last days of steam. But lurking in the background is a tragic story of deceit, lies and greed, together with an unexpected and sordid twist. It is a half-century long tale which culminated in the imprisonment of his wife Conchita and her lover. This is a story of an America that never was and a society that has fed off the myth ever since.
