Description

From the publisher: "[Here is] a collection of beautiful photo-essays from over 40 years of the remarkable career of Danny Lyon (b.1942), one of the most original and influential American photographers. Lyon pioneered the style of photographic 'New Journalism' when he rebelled against Life-magazine-style photographs, and instead immersed himself in the lives of his subjects and paved the way for a future generation of photographers. The work collected here, much of it considered too controversial for publication at the time of its creation, ranges from sensual, richly coloured images of Colombian brothels and black-and-white portraits of boys in 1965 Chicago, to some of his best-known projects such as The Bikeriders story and recent work made in Cuba. Each story is published as a complete piece for the first time and is accompanied by Lyon's own text. Also includes a rare interview with curator Hugh Edwards."
