Lyon's seminal photojournalistic documentation of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club, of which he was a member from 1963-67. "The Bikeriders, an important and influential work, was one of the first books to bring a new genre to late twentieth century photography...Lyon photographed communities from the inside, making them an integral part of his life for the duration of the project...[it] represented a significant step in 1960s American photography, not only launching an important photographic career, but also giving a younger generation of photographers a spokesman...understanding instinctively not only their hopes and aspirations, but also why they were rebelling against all kinds of adult authority." Recognized as one of the most important photography books of the twentieth century. Item #1628
