Bruce Davidson: Subway, first published in 1986, has garnered critical acclaim as documentation of the cultural fabric of New York City. In this third edition, a sequence of 118 (including 25 previously unpublished) images transport the viewer through a landscape at times menacing, lyrical, and soulful. It presents the full gamut of New Yorkers, from weary straphangers and languorous ladies in summer dresses, to stalking predators and homeless people. Accompanying text tells the story behind the images of the subway, its rhythms and its particular madness.
