5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty in chaos, 2 Oct 2011
This review is from: Bruce Davidson: Subway (Hardcover)
I have Davidson's Outside Inside compendium (which includes most of the images in this collection), so wasn't initially intending on picking this up. However, the Outside Inside collection reproduces the images in black and white, and on picking this book in Foyles while buying a present for somebody else, it became very apparent that colour is integral to the images. I was immediately seduced and bought the book.

The printing and binding of this book is of exceptional quality and the size is just the right balance for being able to really see the images while not being too big to easily hold and view.

In terms of the images within this collection, they are just superb. Davidson takes you right into the dark heart of the New York Subway system of the late 70s early 80s, and you are plunged into the melee along with all the other poor suckers taking the train. Some of the images are so striking they elicit a real physical response - friends have literally gasped at the more hardcore images, but there is beauty in there as well, and despite the raw feel to these pictures, they're also clearly carefully considered and expertly taken by a photographer at the top of his game.

Amazon's current price is very good - I would suggest you don't hesitate - buy it.
