Travis Ruse

If you have ever tried to make photographs in the New York City subway system, you know what a difficult task it is. The lighting is terrible. People are wary. It's hard to get a clear shot because of the crowds. Etcetera. And yet Travis Ruse has managed to take countless beautiful candid shots in the subway, day after day, year after year.

Tonight a show of his subway photos will open at 6:30 at Redux Gallery (116 E. 16th St. 12th Flr). I happened to see several freshly printed images over at Gabe Greenberg's studio and they look spectacular, so much more alive than any image on a screen could ever be, can't wait to see them on the wall. The show runs through March 9th.

Opening your blogsite today was like opening the door to an unexpectedly newly redecorated room. Nice layout, and travis' subway shot is rich.

Thanks for introducing me to Travis' work and subway website: really amazing pictures! I regret not being in New York to see those prints...
