Life Below


I love it when i come across a new street photographer previously unknown to me. Such a man is Chrisophe Agou, a French photographer based in New York . From 1997 to 2000 he took a series of images from the New York Subway collected in a book called ‘Life Below’. The last time such a project was done successfully was by Bruce Davidson in his superb book ‘Subway’ which I urge anyone interested in the medium to check out immediately. Agou has not let his illustrious predecessor intimidate him and has created a series of black and white images which perfectly reflect the ambiance and mood of the city I know so well. Here are just a few samples of his work.
