New York City Transit Authority Objects: From the Collection of and Photographed by Brian Kelley

Brooklyn, New York: Standards Manual, 2022. Hardcover. Second printing, 2022. Square quarto. 351 pp. Index. Illustrated with color photos throughout. New York City Transit Authority: Objects originated as a photography experiment. In 2011, New York photographer Brian Kelley began documenting collections of used MetroCards in his Brooklyn studio, arranging them in various grids with the goal of perfecting the lighting of an image. Six years on, many MTA employees follow and advocate his project, sometimes contacting him with information and tips on rare items. As the collection grew, Kelley recognized that there were no comparable digital archives documenting the city's transportation evolution. Fine in black boards. Item #10292307
