Danny Lyon: Memories of Myself with 'Three Young Men'
Limited collector's edition with silver gelatin print.
Memories of Myself is a collection of beautiful photo essays from over forty years of the remarkable career of Danny Lyon, one of the most original and influential documentary photographers in American photography.
Each story is published as a complete piece for the first time, and also includes Lyon’s own texts, which tell the story behind each photo essay and his subjects in his own distinctive voice, to celebrate this rebellious photographer’s unique vision. In 1963, Danny Lyon spent time in a poor white area of Chicago called Uptown. Nicknamed ‘hillbilly heaven’, it was a very tough and deprived neighbourhood. With a borrowed Rolleiflex camera, he followed the inhabitants of Clifton Street, where he befriended the families who lived there, documenting intimate moments both inside their homes and on the street.
