Danny Lyon Photography Exhibition

From Sideburn's well of print knowledge guru Mark Wilson:
The new show at the Atlas Gallery (who hosted the McQueen exhibition a while back) is legendary Magnum photographer Danny Lyon's seminal series The Bikeriders from 1968 and ties in with the original book being re-issued.
The show opened last week and runs to 16th August. A few iPhone snaps attached. Some nice bikes showed up for the private view on Wednesday.
All the classics are there of the dirt track racers in the Midwest (that shot of the guy with 88 on his back is one of my all time favourite images) and the iconographic images from when he was running with the Outlaws MC.
Well worth a visit if you're in west London. Danny Lyon is now in his 70s and still bucking the system by all accounts. For those who can, original photographic prints start at £2,500 - but Ben also has a few signed copies of the new book left for £40 (Get in very quick!).
Atlas is at 49 Dorset Street, Marylebone, London W1U 7NF. Open Mon-Fri 10 - 6 and Saturday 10 - 5.

I saw this! It's worth a look and there's really good coffee and a great knife shop in the general neighbourhood too....
