In 1986, Aperture first published Bruce Davidson's Subway—a ground-breaking series that has garnered critical acclaim both as a document of a unique moment in the cultural fabric of New York City as well as for its phenomenal use of extremes of color and shadow set against flash-lit skin. In Davidson's own words, "the people in the subway, their flesh juxtaposed against the graffiti, the penetrating effect of the strobe light itself, and even the hollow darkness of the tunnels, inspired an aesthetic that goes unnoticed by passengers who are trapped underground, hiding behind masks, and closed off from each other."

As a citizen of the world, Emiko's music reflects her international heritage - half Japanese, half Jewish-American - as she brings to life her journeys through music. Whether it's through the pulsing march of a lone drum on her son "The Great North Road" or the romantic nostalgia of "6am" (both from her upcoming album to be distributed through Universal Music Group), Emiko finds herself crossing musical genres as often as she crosses international borders these days. She performs on Tuesday, October 18, at 8 PM.
