Subways are a great equalizer that supersede social barriers separating people in the aboveground city. In his microcosmic portrayals of everyday human dramas and performances, renowned photographer Herb Robinson profoundly captures the interconnection and alienation of human beings underground and on the move. Readers experience the excitement and extraordinary diversity of three celebrated metropolises in motion. METRO / New York / London / Paris tells a global-local story of immigrants and natives, showing how our worlds are linked and enriched through our common humanity. Innovative concepts and design by Eve Sandler transport viewers forward in this subterranean world. Woven throughout, commentary by Lady Gaga, James Baldwin, King George Vl, Coco Chanel, and others imparts historical context, insider insights, and humor. METRO provides many meaningful windows into the character of each city and its inhabitants, while illuminating modern issues of identity, equality, and the human condition.
