Artist's Reception: Danny Lyon at Stephen Bulger Gallery

Posted By Administration, Saturday, May 11, 2013

The Bikeriders

Exhibition Dates: May 11 - June 15, 2013

Artist's Reception:

Saturday, May 11


The landmark work of Danny Lyon The Bikeriders hardly needs introduction. Not only did this work and Lyon's integration into the bikeriding gang build foundation for his working style, it put him on-track to influence his generation of artists as well as generations to come. Lyon helped articulate the sentiments of his age by giving authentic voice to subjects that may have been otherwise overlooked; his images made unapproachable subjects easier to identify with.


Early on the self-taught photographer tapped into the power of the photograph to inspire social change, and a foreshadowing of this trademark approach at integration into the subject's group fabric could be seen in his first published works taken for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. An outsider when the Bikerider> series began Lyon became a member of the Chicago Outlaw Motorcycle Club, traveled the roadways of the Midwest, and for four years shot from the seat of his Triumph motorcycle. The text published in conjunction with the project, pushed his career forward, and became another outlet for this and future works.
