Danny Lyon: Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement

Through April 13, 2017
Emily Lowe Gallery


Based upon Danny Lyon’s memoir, this exhibition brings together the photographs he took from 1962 to 1964 while traveling through the United States documenting the Civil Rights Movement. Lyon began his photographic career as the first staff photographer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a national group of college students who joined together in 1960 after the first sit-in by four African American college students at a North Carolina lunch counter. With this body of work, Danny Lyon helped define a form of photojournalism in which the image maker is deeply and personally embedded in his subject matter.

Organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.

Funding support has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
