From the article for The Guardian concerning Brian Young’s new book “The Train NYC, 1984”:
In 1984, photographer Brian Young moved to New York, and into a city where violent crime and drug abuse were in full swing. He headed to the subway and started taking pictures. ‘Riding on a subway we discover our city and experience the overwhelming diversity of commerce and human discourse,’ he says. ‘It is a primer on the urban experience.’ The Train NYC 1984 is out now, published by Damiani.
