Limited to only 50 copies individually signed and numbered by Davidson in felt-tip on the half-title. Includes a cloth portfolio containing a beautiful color dye-transfer print measuring 6 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches, signed and editioned in pencil by the photographer on verso. First Edition Thus, First Printing. 4to. 125pages with 96 color illustrations. With 40 extra images not contained in the original 1986 edition. A truly gorgeous production.

From the spring of 1980 to 1985, Davidson explored and shot 600 miles of subway tracks. In his own words, he "wanted to transform this subway from its dark, degrading, and impersonal reality into images that open up our experience again to the color, sensuality, and vitality of the individual souls that ride it each day." Now nearly 25 years later, and on the eve of the subway's 100th anniversary, St. Ann's Press is publishing a new edition of Davidson's classic book. This edition adds 43 unseen images to the original book, and includes an introduction by Arthur Ollman of the Museum of Photographic Art in San Diego, and a foreword by Fred Braithwaite (aka Fab Five Freddy), the original graffiti artist. It also includes Bruce Davidson and Henry Geldzahler's original essays.
