(SOLD): DAVIDSON, Bruce. Subway.

(New York, NY): Aperture, 1986.  First edition.  Oblong quarto.  Unpaginated.  Afterword by Henry Geldzahler.  The Warriors had just made it home when Davidson started photographing on the subway.  His images depict the full panoply of New Yorkers—weary straphangers, languorous ladies, stalking predators, the homeless.  The accompanying text tells the story behind the images, detailing Davidson’s obsession with the subway, its rhythms, and its particular madness. His naked prose, together with his compelling images, evoke the speeding sensation of a subway car, tunnelling out of the darkness into new light and unmistakable beauty.  A near fine copy, light crease to front endpaper, in dust jacket.
