Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders

MonoVisions Black & White Photo Contest

Danny Lyon’s The Bikeriders (1968), became a seminal work of New Journalism when the photographer documented some of the real-life subjects that helped invent the ethos conjured by Loewenthal’s project. Lyon was twenty-one years old, a student at the University of Chicago and a member of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee), when he began riding with and photographing the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club (1963 – 1967). The resulting photographs are intimate, democratic, and revelatory, offering a gritty yet humanistic view that subverts a commercialized image of Americana. Lyon’s heartened career of captured moments continues to inform a view unto ourselves and the connections we make with others.
