Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders

Published by Aperture
Introduction and interviews by Danny Lyon.

Featured photograph is reproduced from <I>Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders</I>.First published in 1968, and now back in print for the first time in ten years, The Bikeriders explores firsthand the stories and personalities of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. This journal-size volume features original black-and-white photographs and transcribed interviews by Lyon, made from 1963 to 1967, when he was a member of the Outlaws gang. Authentic, personal and uncompromising, Lyon’s depiction of individuals on the outskirts of society offers a gritty yet humane perspective that subverts more commercialized treatments of Americana. Akin to the documentary style of 1960s-era New Journalism made famous by writers such as Hunter S. Thompson, Joan Didion and Tom Wolfe, Lyon’s photography is saturation reporting at its finest. The Bikeriders is a touchstone publication of 1960s counterculture, crucially defining the vision of the outlaw biker as found in Easy Rider and countless other movies and photobooks.
Danny Lyon (born 1942) is one of the most influential documentary photographers of the last five decades. His many books include The Movement (1964), The Destruction of Lower Manhattan (1969), Conversations with the Dead (1971), Knave of Hearts (1999), Like a Thief’s Dream (2007) and Deep Sea Diver (2011). Widely exhibited and collected, Lyon has been awarded Guggenheim Fellowships twice and National Endowment for the Arts grants ten times.

Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders

Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders"Ronnie and Cheri, La Porte, Indiana" is reproduced from Aperture's facsimile reprint of Danny Lyon's 1968 classic, The Bikeriders, one of the seminal books in the National Gallery's current Photobooks After Frank. Lyon writes, "If anything has guided this work beyond the facts of the worlds represented it is what I have come to believe is the spirit of the bikeriders: the spirit of the hand that twists open the throttle on the crackling engines of the big bikes and rides them on racetracks or through traffic, or, on occasion, into oblivion." continue to blog
