Danny Lyon: This Is My Life I知 Talking About

By Danny Lyon.

Danny Lyon: This Is My Life I知 Talking About

The life and times of the New Journalism exponent behind The Bikeriders and Conversations with the Dead

This picaresque memoir dives into the heart of the revolutionary 20th century through the lens of one of its most crucial witnesses, American photographer and filmmaker Danny Lyon. His story begins in the Czar-ruled Russia of 1905, when Lyon痴 uncle Abram fled to Brooklyn after his involvement in the murder of a policeman during a pogrom. A few decades later, amid the upheaval of World War II, Lyon was born.
Presaged by this beginning, Lyon痴 life has overseen adventures and tragedies of world-historical proportions. This Is My Life I知 Talking About recounts them in generous detail, from Lyon痴 friendship with the great American civil rights hero John Lewis謡ho is best known for his chairmanship of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee葉o his involvement with the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club, upon which his famous photojournalist work The Bikeriders (1968) was based. Throughout, Lyon writes with tremendous feeling and humor, and his text is accompanied by a selection of unpublished and unseen photographs.
An early exponent of New Journalism, Danny Lyon (born 1942) is one of the most influential documentary photographers of the last six decades. While still a student at the University of Chicago, he was jailed in the South and became the first staff photographer of the SNCC. He went on to publish the seminal photobooks The Bikeriders and Conversations with the Dead (1971), an interrogation of the Texas prison system. Later in life, he pivoted to filmmaking, partnering with Robert Frank.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

AnOther

Miss Rosen

A picaresque memoir that reveals his natural gifts for storytelling. Like his photographs, Lyon痴 prose is electric, poetic, and filled with explosive details, bringing readers into the middle of the action before roaring off to the next episode. The stories move with the same intense pace with which he worked, crisscrossing the country on his red Triumph motorcycle during the 1960s.

A new must-have memoir from American icon Danny Lyon

Featured image is reproduced from noted American photographer Danny Lyon's new memoir, This Is My Life I知 Talking About, releasing this week from Damiani and launching in New York with a signing at Mast Books. Lyon is of course noted for his New Journalism style documentation of the civil rights movement, the Chicago Outlaw Motorcycle Club, the Texas prison system, and much more. He captions this image, which is from the body of work that became his iconic 1967 photobook The Bikeriders (set to release this summer as a major motion picture), with typical affection. 鼎al, born in Canada as Arthur Dion, riding with Little Barbara. Cal, a former Hells Angel from San Bernadino, is my best friend in the Outlaws. In my Hyde Park apartment, he narrated many of the stories that became the text of the book. In the film Cal is played by Boyd Holbrook. A housepainter, Cal fell off a ladder and died in the 1980s. continue to blog
