All the images in this group were interesting.

I especially appreciated the black and white images. Stephen's bridges remind me of the Tacoma Narrows scene -- the mood was very real. I enjoyed his way of "seeing".

However, the images which had the most impact and communicated the greatest connection to the subject were for me the beautifully presented images by Joan Powers of the New York subway experience. The candid images shot in the subway cars spontaneously capture activites and moods of tavellers in this busy, impersonal environment. I felt like I was there. The serious musician, outside the subway car, but still in the underground world, is part of the atmosphere. He is sometimes appreciated but often ignored. The newspaper carried by a moving annonymous person somewhere in the underground is characteristic of subway riders. These few images speak volumes about the "down under" world. BRAVO

Joan Powers' Subway Series Down Under is a true testament to finding beauty in the everyday experience. Her unique camera angles and use of contrasting lines and shapes converts the somewhat mundane world of subway life into a new, refreshed perspective.

I rode the subways in NYC from 1966 to 1970, every day. Joan Power's work takes me back (some things never change). I love the two young women with such (subway) expressive faces! And the newspaper en route is SO much IT.

The "Down Under " series photographed by Joan Powers caught me unaware that my voyeuristic personality lies just beneath my prurient photographic and imaginative need....Thank you Camera Arts and thank you Ms. Powers........Richard Stein
