【註解書目】紐約地鐵研究;主題5-9

10/29/2005

這一份註解書目的來源出處是NYC SUBWAY (source: http://www.nycsubway.org/biblio/) 。是兩個星期前亂逛的時候發現的。一開始的時候有點驚訝;就地鐵嘛,怎麼會有這麼多文獻阿。不過後來想一想,我之前在設計學院的時候,還遇過有人在搞紐約市下水道的; 你們知道下水道也住了很多人嗎?他們的故事可是忍者龜的靈感來源耶。這樣想一想,連下水道都有人可以拿來寫書了,地鐵是紐約人每天都要使用的空間,有這麼多書就不會太驚訝了。

這份書目的對象是一般大眾,所以範圍從流行書籍,畫冊,到學術書籍都包含了。原本的書目整理的並不是很有調理,所以我就稍加分類了一下。算是雞鴉狗狒對紐約狂熱份子的萬聖節禮物囉。

紐約地鐵與攝影

Many Are Called
by Walker Evans (2004)
Hardcover: 192 pages
Publisher: Yale University Press; (October 1, 2004)
ISBN: 0300106173

Amazon.com writeup: This three-year photographic study of subway passengers made with a hidden camera was first published in 1966. Long out of print, Many Are Called is now being reissued with a new foreword and afterword and with exquisitely reproduced images from newly prepared digital scans. In 1938, Walker Evans began surreptitiously photographing people on the New York City subway. With his camera hidden in his coat – the lens peeking through a buttonhole – he captured the faces of riders hurtling through the dark tunnels, wrapped in their own private thoughts.

    記得第一學期在人類所一堂讓我壓力很大的Seminar,唸過一本小書叫做In the Metro,作者是Marc Auge。這堂旁聽課大概只有我是人類所的學生,其他人都是來自不同領域,我那時還在適應左右開弓連珠砲的討論方式,常從頭到尾都沒辦法插進去討論。In the Metro是一本被課堂上同學批得有點慘的小書(大家評論其實是這個ethnographer的個人巴黎地鐵經驗無法代表或應用在所有地鐵系統…),可是我很愛這本小書(但書好像還在小河馬那裡,所以不在我手上,沒辦法為大家深入報導)。舉一個我記得的片段為例,Auge講到時間這件事如何在地鐵裡具現與encounter。他用很幽默有趣的筆調,敘述著地鐵從一站到下一站短短的移動時間裡,看到車上年輕小伙子乘客的打扮跟動作(比如說隨著隨身聽的音樂搖擺),好像某個程度反映出另一種時間的交會──作者思考自己開始覺得年輕人舉止輕浮毛燥這件事,好像產生了另一種時間(就是年齡之間)的對話–於是驚覺於自己只是因為老了而不認同或不習慣年輕的存在…對作者來說,地鐵是個很多生活片段、時空的短暫交會場所。這種概念我還蠻欣賞的。雖然是巴黎地鐵的人類學作品,我覺得研究移動空間這件事真的很有趣。為了確認這本書的書名作者資訊,我逛到兩個有趣的blog也是跟空間/地鐵有關,把他們列在下面(連結是連結到其中跟In the Metro這本書有關的文章):
