Danny Lyon

 

Among a group of revolutionaries

whose work rose to prominence

in the late 1960s and ’70s

and transformed the nature

of documentary photography

— a group that includes friends

and colleagues of Mr. Lyon’s

like Mary Ellen Mark and Larry Clark —

the idea of conscience

has been imbedded more deeply

in Mr. Lyon’s photographs than in those

of all but a few of his contemporaries.

 

At a time when picture magazines

were still a holy grail

for young photographers,

Mr. Lyon, self-taught, began his career

as the first staff photographer

for the Student Nonviolent

Coordinating Committee.

 

A week after hitchhiking south

in 1962 at the age of 20

he was in jail with other

protesters in Albany, Ga.,

next to the cell

of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

And Mr. Lyon’s first book,

the classic “Bikeriders,”

made after spending

more than two years as a member

of the Outlaws motorcycle gang,

was not just a pioneering

example of New Journalism but,

as he later described it,

an attempt “to destroy Life magazine”

and what he saw as its anodyne vision

of American life.
