Verlag: Random House
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: InThe Subway Pictures,Peter Peter shares his extraordinary images of life on the move, capturing "ordinary" New Yorkers in a remarkable give-and-take with their public surroundings. As Billy Collins writes in his Foreword, "Each of these images is a visual report from underground, the testimony of an optical Virgil bringing us news of the travelers below, momentarily stopped figures in the nonstop shuttling that goes on beneath the concrete skin of the city." In the wake of September 11, Peter found the heart of New York City in the subterranean world through which he rode nearly every day for the next three years. "It was like being carried along on a river of whispering signs and symbols," he writes. "Travelers suspended in contemplation by the steady rhythm of stop-and-go seemed like speechless souls from a different dimension. The scene reshuffled at each stop and every now and then the elements would slip into a visual story." In the seventy-seven candid color pictures culled from the thousands Peter snapped with his basic 3 megapixel camera, the magic is everywhere. Whether we are looking at a very tall man crocheting with incredible concentration, someone flamboyantly stretching on the platform, or a Jackie Collins look-alike applying makeup, the world that comes across is vibrantly human and defiantly unself-conscious. Published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the opening of the fabled New York City subway system,The Subway Picturesis an unforgettable tribute to the individuality of all those who ride underground in New York, and to every urban American.
