Pub. Date:
In The Subway Pictures, Peter Peter shares his images of life on the move, capturing "ordinary" New Yorkers in a give-and-take with their public surroundings.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.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 Pictures is a tribute to the individuality of all those who ride underground in New York, and to every urban American.
