About the book
Danny Lyon has long been considered one of the most original and influential documentary photographers. He pioneered the style of photographic ‘New Journalism’ as he rebelled against Life magazine style photographs, instead immersing himself as a participant with his documented subjects.

 


About the author(s)
Danny Lyon (b.1945) has long been considered one of the most influential documentary photographers and has produced several highly collectable photobooks, exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, and won numerous awards. He divides his time between New York State and New Mexico.

Hugh Edwards (1903–86) was an influential American curator of photography. Along with Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and John Szarkowski, Edwards struggled to win the acceptance of fine art and documentary photography as art forms. Edwards was Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1959 until 1970.
