Artist Talk: Bruce Davidson, Subway
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 6:30 pm
Admission: Free

“First published in 1986, photographer Bruce Davidson‘s classic book Subway 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 languorous 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.

Join Davidson for a talk and book signing on the occasion of his exhibition Subway, and the reissue of his book. Please note that Davidson will only be signing copies of Subway at his artist talk and no other publications.”

This talk is being presented in conjunction with Davidson’s exhibition at Aperture on view until October 29th.
