Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday February 12
Charles A. Hartman
134 NW 8th Ave.
 
Is it possible for a piece of paper with a black-and-white image to distill the essence of an era? That’s what photographer Danny Lyon is betting on with The Bikeriders, a distillation of the motorcycle-gang subculture of the 1960s. These images are chock-full of bikes and beer guts, tattoos and wifebeaters, greasy-spoon diners and yards upon yards of leather.... In short, this is exactly what you’d expect from a photographic essay of this time and milieu, which makes you wonder: Is this a portrait or a caricature of its era? Or, in the end, is there any difference? Through March 16
