This exhibition of more than 60 photographs and photographic montages from 1962 to the present traces the fascinating and wide-ranging career of Danny Lyon. A leading and explosive figure in the American street photography movement of the 1960s, Lyon distinguished himself from his peers through his direct engagement with his subjects and his concern for those on the margins of society.
The exhibition is organized by the Menil Collection, Houston. Its presentation in San Francisco is generously supported by the Pritzker Fund for Photography.
