“There are so many worlds out there. If you take the trouble to leave yours and go into another, you become a much more interesting person.” Danny Lyon didn’t just embed with his subjects; he walked the proverbial walk. Photographer for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, documentarian of the incarcerated in notorious Texas prisons, chronicler of the demolition of Lower Manhattan, and climate activist, Lyon even spent time living with outlaw bikers, exploring another notion of freedom. His new memoir, This Is My Life I'm Talking About, is proof that he was more than just a very interesting person.
