Living legend Danny Lyon to exhibit his iconic work The Bikeriders at the Terry Etherton Gallery this fall. Beyond the images themselves are a host of accompanying events including an artist's reception, book signing, and film screening that render this a pilgrimage for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Lyon revolutionized the documentary approach by submerging himself within the communities he was recording. Lyon's subjects were marginalized or rebellious folks: from the counter-culture of the Bikeriders to death-row inmates at Huntsville Prison, activists within the Civil Rights Movement and Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and more. Lyon recorded with reverence the major movements and fringe characters of his contemporary culture. His approach was neither tertiary nor voyeuristic. He implicated himself and his subjects, their lives and stories in the work. The result are intimate, personal, and honest reflections. Beyond the image Lyon drew dialogue and incorporated the words of his subjects into texts published, over 20 texts have been produced by the artist thus far. Lyon became a pioneer of his time, influencing a generation of photographers.
