Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of rare, vintage photographs by Danny Lyon from his groundbreaking series, 'Conversations with the Dead'.

In 1967-68 Lyon spent over fourteen months inside Texas prisons, photographing and befriending inmates. Drawn from his own archive, many of the works on view are the first prints made and used to edit and lay out the first publication of his seminal book, 'Conversations with the Dead: Photographs of Prison Life with the Letters and Drawings of Billy McCune #122054' (Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1971). The exhibition coincides with Phaidon’s publication of the facsimile edition of the original 1971 book.

Danny Lyon is a self-taught photographer, writer and filmmaker. He has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation and The Rockefeller Foundation in both filmmaking and photography. In 2011 Lyon received the Missouri Honor Medal in Journalism. This fall he will receive the Lucie Award for Achievement in Documentary Photography. Lyon lives and works in New Mexico.
