Bruce Davidson's photograph of a subway rider in 1980

Starting this Friday and running till February 28, the gallery at the Hermes store (691 Madison Avenue) will be showing photographer Bruce Davidson's subway photographs. Davidson, who work also includes civil rights moments and a study of an East Harlem street, captured that distinct period of time during the 80s when subway cars were filled with graffiti, crime was terrible, and the Me decade was just beginning. You can see more of his photographs at Magnum Photos.
