A collection of beautiful photo essays from over forty years of the
remarkable career of Danny Lyon, one of the most original and
influential documentary photographers in American photography Lyon
pioneered the style of photographic 'New Journalism' as he rebelled
against Life magazine style photographs, instead immersing himself
in the lives of his subjects - such as a Chicago motorcycle club or
a group of Texas prison inmates - and paved the way for this style
of work in a future generation of photographers such as Nan Goldin.
A radical and maverick figure, much of his photography was
considered too controversial for publication at the time of its
creation and is now collected together in this wide body of work
which ranges from sensual, richly coloured images of girls in a
barrio of Colombian brothels and stunning black and white portraits
of young local boys in 1965 Chicago, to some of his best-known
projects such as the iconic The Bikeriders story and recent work
made in Cuba. Each story is published as a complete piece for the
first time, and also includes Lyon's own texts, which tell the
story behind each photo essay and his subjects in his own
distinctive voice, to celebrate this rebellious photographer's
