New York City's subway system has long been the stuff of legend as well as a source of inspiration and fear. This dark, democratic environment provides the setting for photographer Bruce Davidson's reissued first extensive series in colour. In this book, subway riders are set against a gritty, graffitistrewn background, displayed in tones that Davidson describes as 'an iridescence like that I had seen in photographs of deepsea fish'. Never before has the subway been portrayed in such detail, revealing the interplay of its inner landscape and outer vistas. The photographs move from the menacing to the lyrical, from the soulful to the satiric. They include lovers, commuters, tourists, families, and the homeless. From weary straphangers to languorous ladies in summer dresses to stalking predators, Davidson presents a clear and compassionate vision of life in motion. Originally published in 1986, this updated Steidl edition of Subway is printed from new scans of Davidson’s Kodachrome slides and features additional images.
