Memories of myself: essays
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 paving 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.
