  1. Hey James your photography are spot on the subway shots are priceless with the story. Thanks for your time to teach Iam learning to take some good photography and I understand being in that moment for that shot.I need to go out more with my camera. Thank!!

    1. Glad you enjoyed the article Thomas! We all do!

  2. Nice post!

    Nice selection of photos. I have a copy of Davidson’s subway book but can’t find it…got lost in the mess. I don’t live in NY, but plan to visit 2 or 3 times a year to shoot. The amount of photo ops for the street photog in Manhattan is just sickening…

    I’m doing a book on the subway. (Like the world really needs another one…but we got to shoot something.) I seldom talk to the people on the street or the subway. I’m kinda shy, so I use my candid skills. If light is poor I can use IR flash to stay undercover.

    NYC is the yawning capitol of the world!

    …but that is another book.

    1. Ha! Yeah I don’t flash people in general. On the subway, that’s a very tough thing to do.

  3. Thanks for this. I recently took a class on street photography which started with art history. I selected Bruce Davidson as the artist who spoke most to me. Wrote my piece on him. Love his work and love New York.

    1. Happy to hear that Debi! His work is wonderful.
