DANNY LYONS - CONVERSATIONS WITH THE DEAD
Said to be Danny Lyons’ masterpiece, Conversations with the Dead doesn’t disappoint. Infact this work is among the best we’ve seen. In the 1960’s (1967-1968) Lyons spent 14 months in six of the most dangerous penitentiaries in Texas. “Ellis” being the most dangerous, we see photographs displaying the pure anguish of what it was and still is
like within the Texas prison system. Through his time in the prison system photographing inmates, Lyons befriended some of the most dangerous men of that time. He was welcomed to their cells and we can see the sheer distress in every photo.
