Pour son 6e numéro depuis sa réédition, Caméra a vu les choses en grand. En ouverture, la revue propose un sujet sur Nan Goldin, à l'occasion de la sortie de son dernier ouvrage, Eden and after, consacré à l'enfance. Un portrait passionnant, accompagné d'images issues de l'ouvrage.
Puis, Caméra continue son exploration avec Emmet Gowin, et lui consacre un long entretien. Exposé à la Fondation Cartier-Bresson jusqu'au 27 juillet prochain, cet entretien est accompagné d'images célèbres mais non moins admirables du photographe américain.

ATTICA : généalogie d'une émeute carcérale« Laissez-moi mourir d’être Noir », lance Mohamed Ali à la télévision irlandaise en 1972, dans un poème-hommage aux émeutiers d'Attica. Un an auparavant, dans la prison du même nom, la révolte contre un système carcéral raciste, inégalitaire et ultra-violent a été écrasée dans le sang. 31 détenus et 11 gardiens ont été tués. Il y a eu plus de 200 blessés. Mais cette fois-ci, la répression ne s'est faite ni dans le silence ni dans le secret des cellules. Elle a été vue, photographiée même et commentée de l'intérieur. Le Point du Jour nous replonge au cœur du drame avec son exposition Attica, US...
Exhibition : « Journey » by Danny LyonEdwynn Houk Gallery's press release
In celebration of Danny Lyon’s acclaimed retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Edwynn Houk Gallery presents Journey, a selection of rare vintage prints and collages from the artist’s personal collection. Spanning his remarkable career from one of his earliest photographs made in the desert of Arizona in 1962 to his newest collage made in a Mayan village in Belize in 2016, the exhibition examines a cross-section of Lyon’s important and varied body of work.
Continuing in the tradition of Walker Evans and Robert Frank, Lyon forged a new style of realistic photography, described as “New Journalism,” where the photographer immerses himself in his subject’s world. From images of the Civil Rights movement made during his early days ...
Exhibition : « Conservations with the dead » by Danny Lyon Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of rare, vintage photographs by Danny Lyon from his groundbreaking series, Conversations with the Dead. In 1967-68 Lyon spent over fourteen months inside Texas prisons, photographing and befriending inmates. Drawn from his own archive, many of the works on view are the first prints made and used to edit and lay out the first publication of his seminal book, Conversations with the Dead: Photographs of Prison Life with the Letters and Drawings of Billy McCune #122054 (Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1971). The exhibition coincides with Phaidon’s publication of the facsimile edition of the original 1971 book.
Danny Lyon is known for photographing outsiders as an advocate of social justice and human rights. As the first staff photographer for the Student Nonviolen...
Atlas Gallery presents Danny Lyon's « The Bikeriders »
The Bikeriders is an iconic work of modern photojournalism that gives a raw and lively insight into the biker culture of the 1960’s, captured between 1963 and 1967 when the young Danny Lyon immersed himself completely into the lives and culture of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. ATLAS Gallery, London, will be exhibiting 40 modern prints from The Bikeriders series from 19 June – 16 August 2014, marking the first time these prints have been shown in the UK.
Lyon’s approach was to document his subjects intimately from the inside, rather than simply observing as an outsider. He spent four enthralling years with the Club’s members on long distance rides, at meets, races and informal gatherings across the United States, in locations including Milwaukee, Long Island New York, Chicago, New Orlea...
History & Hope: Celebrating the Civil Rights Movement
"In 1952, I was home on leave from the Air Force and went to Kresge's in my uniform for lunch. I took a seat at the front of the lunch counter, and the young lady working there had to get permission from her boss to serve me."
– Chester Owens, Historian of Kansas City, KS
This exhibition was created in collaboration with the American Jazz Museum and the Black Archives of Mid- America in Kansas City to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington in August 1963 and the signing of the Civil Rights Act in June 1964.
It showcases the work of artists and musicians who were pivotal in the struggle for human equality and racial harmony, and those who remain influenced by the movement today.

Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders
During the 1960s and 1970s several photographers, including Diane Arbus, Larry Clark, and Susan Meiselas, documented life on the fringes of society, providing a glimpse of counterculture from the inside out. These images were often published as narrative sequences in books that told complex stories in multiple pictures. In the early 1960s Danny Lyon (U.S., born 1942) joined the Chicago Outlaw Motorcycle Club and began photographing his fellow Hell’s Angels while traveling with the club on his 650cc Triumph motorcycle. The result was one of the seminal photographic essays of his generation, and the 1968 publication The Bikeriders that contained over 50 photographs and interviews with Lyon’s subjects.
In pictures of dirt track racing and motorcycle gang life, Lyon captures both the realism and the romant...
Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement Danny Lyon
If as Congressman John Lewis noted “there would be no Barak Obama without the Civil Rights Movement,” then it is equally true that our understanding of the Movement would be much poorer without the photographs of Danny Lyon. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the passage of The Civil Rights Act of 1964, the landmark legislation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, Etherton Gallery is pleased to announce Danny Lyon: Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement, an exhibition of Lyon’s Civil Rights Portfolio. Etherton will display 50 gelatin silver photographs, made between 1962-1964, when Lyon served as the first staff photographer for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, better known as SNCC. SNCC played a critical role in ...
The Bikeriders - Danny Lyon
One year before the release of the classic biker film Easy Rider, a young photographer named Danny Lyon published The Bikeriders, a book featuring an iconic and influential series of photographs of biker culture that Lyon took from 1963-67. Lyon’s then-uncommon approach, which was not common at the time, was to photograph his subjects from the inside, rather than simply being an observer. In 1963, Lyon joined the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club and, over the next four years, participated with the members on long distance rides and at races, field meets and informal gatherings, always armed with camera and tape recorder. Lyon became friends with his subjects and with this series helped to demystify a culture that was often stereotyped as a form of “low life.”
Lyon began photographing in the early ...
