Bruce Davidson - Subway
Text(s) by Bruce Davidson, Henry Geldzahler and Fred Brathwaite
30 x 29,4 cm
In this third edition, a sequence of 118 images (twenty-five never-before-published) move the viewer through a landscape at times menacing, at others lyrical, soulful, and satiric. They depict the full panoply of New Yorkers—weary straphangers, languorous ladies, stalking predators, the homeless.
Davidson’s text tells the story behind the images, detailing his obsession with the subway, its rhythms, and its particular madness. His naked prose, together with his compelling images, evoke the speeding sensation of a subway car, tunneling out of the darkness into new light and unmistakable beauty.
