1970's Photography - Danny Lyon

For the Documerica Project (1971-1977), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hired freelance photographers to capture images relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s.

While on assignment for DOCUMERICA, Danny Lyon captured striking images of inner city American life of the early 1970s, including neighborhoods in El Paso, Houston, Galveston, Chicago, and the boroughs of New York City.

 Here are a few of my favourites from Danny Lyons DOCUMERICA work.

  1. Fantastic photos! My parents had a Chevrolet BelAir just like the one in the last photo when I was a kid. It was turquoise and white.
