Danny Lyon’s new exhibition at The Whitney

It's always fun to keep track of photographers who've passed through Atlanta, or have presented during the Festival. Danny Lyon gave a riveting artist talk at Woodruff Arts Center in 2008, and has a new exhibition opening in New York this weekend.

It's great to see that the working relationship forged between Mr. Lyon and Julian Cox has persisted and flourished beyond Atlanta. A good read from Jonathan Blaustein:

"'I was in Atlanta, this is where his journey began as a photographer,' Mr. Cox said. 'He was a young kid, really, in his early 20s. He was entrusted to get out there and make a record of these various public protests, marches, and demonstrations on a variety of different issues. Voting rights, segregation, et cetera.'"
