Little Boy [Danny Lyon, New Mexico]

New Mexico: 1977. Offset. 11 3⁄4 x 9 1⁄2 in. Vertical fold line through center; else near fine. Item #5891

Flyer advertising the release of filmmaker and photojournalist Danny Lyon’s realist film (a term he preferred over documentary), named after the atomic bomb built in New Mexico and dropped on Hiroshima.

The film poetically documents contemporary New Mexico through the realities of Native American and Chicano life in an unforgiving, pulsating landscape. Lyon was the official photographer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), an important civil rights photographer and documentarian of American life, and remains active today.

A rare record of New Journalism filmmaking from one of the era’s most-well known photographers.
