Editorial Reviews

"Photographer of all things rebellious and quietly wild, Phaidon’s retrospective covers nearly 7 decades of Danny Lyon’s work and includes some never–before–seen images and mixed media work, along with written commentary by the man behind the lens." – TIME LightBox "This unconventional monograph of the work of photographer, writer, and filmmaker Lyon is a revealing hybrid memoir in text and images. . . Reproductions of his striking photographs are interspersed with collages of documents and images, as well as evocative writing about the personal, political, and professional moments that defines his career" – Publishers Weekly "Photography is not merely [Lyon’s] occupation or livelihood. This medium and his life are inextricably linked, and he reveals this plainly through a seamless weaving of the personal and professional. . . A lovely informality results from this combination of elements, as if we are rummaging unfettered through his studio." – photo–eye ". . . a poignant personal account of the remarkable 50 year career of one of America’s most original photographers." – Juxtapoz "More than just another monograph or retrospective photo book. . . a remarkably raw and compelling journey" – Faded and Blurred "A far cry from the vacuous coffee table art books with which it shares its considerable scale. This tome requires work. But it is the kind of work that any lover of the medium will welcome with great enthusiasm, relishing every moment spent with the work of a great artist." – photo‐eye "Lyon is a national treasure." – EDGE on the net "Allure of the outlaw. . . [Lyon] takes risks to get great photos." – Classic Bike Magazine
