Image of the Day

Tottle House... Occupied During Sit-in, 1963, by Queens-born photographer Danny Lyon, from a selection of his work on view now at James Harris Gallery in Seattle. Lyon discovered James Agee and Walker Evans' Let Us Now Praise Famous Men at a young age, and after attending the University of Chicago, got his first big break as photographer for the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). He went on to win acclaim as a New Photojournalist, a contemporary of (among others) Mary Ellen Mark and Larry Clark. The twenty prints on display at James Harris span the years between 1962 and 1972. Click here for more images and info.
