Metro at SF Camerawork

I was thrilled to give a talk at the Daylight Books Spring 2016 launch event at San Francisco Camerawork last week where my book   Metro: Scenes from an Urban Stage   was unveiled.

After spending countless hours riding and photographing on metro systems around the world during the past eight years, followed by months of editing and sequencing of images for the book, and making numerous design decisions, it was wonderful to finally hold the completed monograph in my hand. The 88 page hardbound 8 by 10 inch book contains fifty images from metros in fifteen cities on four continents. It includes a wonderful foreword by Ed Kashi and a compelling essay by Marlaine Glicksman. The graphic design by Ursula Damm is simultaneously classic and unique. The beautiful duotone printing was done by Ofset Yapimivi in Istanbul on Magno matt paper. I’m very grateful for all of the help and encouragement I received from my friends and everyone at Daylight Books. I’m extremely pleased with this book turned out, and I hope that you will agree.
