Metro Book – Signed Copies Now Available

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 images, Metro: Scenes from an Urban Stage has finally arrived. The 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 and the beautiful duotone printing on Magno matte paper, make this eighty-eight page book a joy to behold. I’m grateful to everyone at Daylight Books, and I’m extremely pleased with the way this book turned out. I hope you’ll agree!

“This book is part of a great legacy of photographic work that has been produced about subway passengers … This is something to see, to ponder, and to cherish.”

— Ed Kashi from his Foreword

“Raucher’s focus is not the dramatic actions that usually capture our consciousness and newspaper headlines. He’s not a subway Weegee. He’s drawn towards moments internal and intimate, quiet and quotidian, interactions startling only in how universally commonplace – how human – they are, in how the very publicness of riding a subway can give way to moments of intimacy at all.”

— Marlaine Glicksman from her Essay
