Brooklyn Bridge Station – the IRT line in New York City. Composed of 98 RAW files, and stitched with APG Kolor software. The original is about 50,000 pixels wide (too large to post here on FAA). If you are interested in a very large version, please contact me.
Contrasting summer styles on the number six train. Photographed from the hip. circa 1994. The fellow on the left found the shot on the web and was thrilled. He just wanted me to send him a print.
From film, around 1995. 14th street subway station, train pulling out. Feels like a gray scale. 35mm film.
Blurred figures go down steps in the subway. circa 1990.
New York Subway. IRT line. Photographed with large format camera. 1993
This was photographed with a 4×5 view camera (yes, a large format camera) back before 9-11 when you could still do such things. It is a long exposure and so the crowd on the station is blurred. Has, as you’d expect, very great detail.
Waiting for the 6 train; summer; probably 1998. Typical street shot irony or reinforced messages.
I’ve always thought of the subway as the city’s “id.” So I always haunt the subways during Halloween. That’s about my favorite place to shoot when any big holiday is going on.
Last year, I bought a very wide angle lens for my DSLR, and put it on a monopod which I set up to take low angle pictures of riders. I liked the distortion and the stringy feeling it gave to people. It seemed (at least to me) to make them appear more like statues.
