In his mid-teens, Bruce Davidson (1933, USA) began riding Chicago’s elevated ‘L’ train into the city, exploring neighbourhoods and observing wide varieties of people. It was in those days that he developed skills and interests that would be seen in his later photographic works. This becomes apparent when one looks at Subway, a now classic portrayal of the New York underground train network in the late 1970s. It represented the blood-filled arteries of a city pumping with organic, authentic, urban-brewed culture.
