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 unique vision.
