“Hell On Wheels” – Photographs from the New York Underground 1977 – 1984 – is a joyous and soulful trip in the bygone era of the New York subway system. Swiss photographer Willy Spiller, living in New York at the time, documented his underground travels with the curiosity of a foreigner, fascinated by the rush and the madness of its time. It’s the period of the first rap music, graffiti, The Warriors in the cinema, Guardian Angels on the trains and Ed Koch in charge of a broke and crime-riddled city. Willy Spiller’s images are as much a visual document of this incomparable realm as they are a syncopated, colorful poem to the city of New York and its people.
With a foreword by Tobia Bezzola.
