Bruce Davidson’s groundbreaking Subway, first published by Aperture in 1986. Certainly it has garnered critical acclaim both as a documentation of a unique moment in the cultural fabric of New York City. As a result of its phenomenal use of extremes of color and shadow set against flash-lit skin. In Davidson’s own words, “the people in the subway, their flesh juxtaposed against the graffiti, the strobe light itself, and even the hollow darkness of the tunnels. Inspired an aesthetic that goes unnoticed by passengers who are trapped underground, hiding behind masks and closed off from each other. The images present the full gamut of New Yorkers.
