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 neighborhood. 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. The scene of Inside Kathy’s Apartment is particularly intimate, not only in the tender moment shared between the seated couple but also because we see various private domestic objects and a third person, sat only inches away and yet completely engrossed in her own activities.

Memories of Myself is a collection of beautiful photo-essays from over 40 years of the remarkable career of Danny Lyon (b.1942), one of the most original and influential American 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.

Each story is published as a complete piece for the first time and is accompanied by Lyon’s own text. Also includes a rare interview with curator, Hugh Edwards.
