First published in 1986, photographer Bruce Davidson’s classic series has since garnered critical acclaim for its phenomenal use of extremes of color and shadow set against flash-lit skin. In this third publication, a sequence of 118 images, including 25 never-before-published photographs, moves the viewer through a landscape sometimes menacing, at other times lyrical, soulful and satiric. The images include the full panoply of New Yorkers – from weary straphangers and languourous ladies in summer dresses, to stalking predators and the homeless. Davidson’s accompanying text tells the story behind the images, clarifying his method and dramatizing his experience. The artist will discuss his work and give a slideshow presentation at this special event at the Strand. Please note: Bruce Davidson will only be signing copies of the new edition of Subway. Do not bring any other titles to the event, as they will not be signed. Bruce Davidson is considered one of America’s most influential photographers. His work has been shown at the International Center of Photography, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Museum Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C. among many other institutions.
