I’ve always been inspired by photos taken on public transport. The sense of intimacy in such a small place with such a diverse cross-section of a cities people make for some of the finest street work around. Photos taken on the New York subway in the 80’s have such a special grit that just can’t be reproduced today. The combination of grafitti, metal, tough characters and film just can’t be beat. I’ve been to New York and I can see it’s appeal, but a lot of that grit has gone, but I could still feel what these guys saw.
