Basically, I thing exiv2 and exiftool should return all the metadata in an  
image if you just enter the file as "argument". there should be some  
options to display the precise XMP/IPTC path and name of each entry, and  
with that, you'll be able to determine how get the information you want I  

man exiftool can give you some info.

If you make exiftool -G -S yourfile

It should return all the metadatas sorted by group and with the group and  
shortname for each tag.

So in this output you look which tag interest you and you get its name.  
The subject is output among others as this :

[XMP] Subject : subject1, subject2, etc...

If you want to gey this tag, you just have to do this in terminal :

exiftool -XMP:Subject yourfile
