Free pdf Subway Author Bruce Davidson – Andy-palmer.co.uk
I grew up in the Northeast in the 1970 s and 1980 s These images remind me of my youth, riding the subways in Philadelphia While inner cities these days have their fair share of crime, poverty, etc, these images are haunting and a stark reminder of what inner cities really looked like back then It was a different world, a different time While some of the images can be disturbing, they still convey a sense that life was simpler I can easily get lost in this book for hours on a single image I highly recommend this book for anyone into photography or the history of modern inner cities, hip hop, and or trains To echo Fab 5 Freddy Thank you Bruce Davidson The most wonderful moments of my life are losing time staring at an open book, this book doesn t disappoint. Photographs Show The People Who Ride New York S Subways, Including The Young, Old, Tourists, Commuters, The Homeless, And Thieves i have been desiring this book for quite a while i noticed it came back and i had to have it.the few photos you can find on the internet have a powerful story, and the book finally delivers of that There truly is so much rich media in the entire book itself.the book is dramatic with color and shadow use, captures a grunge and somewhat gothic approach with tones of hope.this collection is the perfect history lesson to the days of our changed subway system from someone who has followed and studied Mr Davidson s past work, this is extremely different but has that familiar reward by this artist.I kind of doubt that Bruce personally favors this collection over anything done in his past, however i really do love this work most of all. This book is beautiful I owned E 100th street and other Bruce Davidson books, and Subway is the best I had seen it a long time ago and I don t have an explanation on why i didn t buy it earlier Magnificent lightning, framing and subject matter Subway is now my favorite photo book. In 1980, Bruce Davidson began to photograph the New York subway system He first started photographing in Black and White and then decided that the project required color Davidson generally asked permission before photographing someone ironically the one notable exception was a man Davidson did not know was blind It is one of my favorite images p 54 He offered to send them a print of the picture Yet most of the photographs do not appear posed The breadth of life on the New York subway system is impressive You will see beautiful women, daring and frightening young men, some violence, people dealing with crowded situations, lonely people, business people, elderly people, musicians, graffiti, people in love, street people, an arrest in short the full panoply of life in NYC It s just wonderful The images are a bit on the dark side which fits the subject Davidson used a flash as this was necessary Many of the images have too much flash but I did not find this to be than a modest distraction.The quality of reproduction is excellent I learned about the variety of humanity below the ground in New York The enterprise was not without risk Someone stole one of Davidson s cameras The book does not make the NY subway seem to be a safe place but certainly one where it s possible to genuinely connect with the humanity we all share.Highly recommended. Subway is a book about people And therefore Btruce Davidson is not photographing the underground railwaysystem For him the subway brings people together and for him the interaction between the users is his subject In a magnificent way he portraits those men, women and children who uses the subway His pictures are honest and full of humanity When I compare this book with other books about the subway and not necessarily in New York it is one of the best books I ever saw.
