    From the Platform

    Discussion started by Madclout - Jan 23, 2005

    "From the Platform"

    The dictionary defines Longevity as a long duration or continuance, as
    in an occupation.
    Me personally, I can define it in one word: Cavs. Great writers with
    fancy styles and awesome can control come and go with the breeze, but
    real writers, writers who embody what it means to “put in work” are few
    and far between. He was a force to be reckoned with on the New York
    subways during the 1980s. Beginning his career in 1983, Cavs didn’t hang up
    his cans in 1989 when the subways were permanently cleaned. He took a
    deep breath, changed direction slightly, and became instrumental in
    sparking off the, then new, North American freight scene. But wait, it
    gets better. All that fame and glory and Cavs still had time to amass
    one of the most comprehensive photo collections of all time. After 22
    years the rest of the world will be greatful to know that Cavs' book
    " From The Platform" will be in stores in 2005.
    There you will be able to get a glimpse of what Cavs saw in the 20+ years that
    he was an active subway and freight writer, plus some of his own works.
    So for all those who overstand the necessity of capturing history, in
    the immortal words of Cavs himself
    “Badda Bing”
    "From The Platform" A collection of subway fotos from the Cavster's Archive. 1983-1988.

    nice...hopefully this will mean a grip of never seen before sento flicks. i'd love to see a TFP book from 1989-present, those are some rare gems.
