About this title:

Synopsis:

A digitally remastered facsimile edition of Danny Lyon's seminal 1971 photobook, highly influential in the history of documentary photography.

Conversations with the Dead provides an extraordinary photographic record of life inside six Texas prisons and the relationships Lyon built with the inmates. Revolutionary at the time of publication, it was one of the first photobooks to include ephemera.

This new edition has been updated with an afterward by Lyon himself detailing what happened to the inmates in the 40 years since the book was first published. It also offers new, unseen material including outtake images, audio recordings and newly commissioned texts on a specially created microsite as a free ibook edition of this landmark publication.

Features:
- A new afterward by Danny Lyon

Review:

"The idea of conscience has been imbedded more deeply in Mr. Lyon's photographs than in those of all but a few of his contemporaries." ―The New York Times

"Conversations with the Dead is the purest expression of Lyon's human spirit." ―Collector Daily

"Lyon's black-and-white photographs of prisoners are so striking... they capture the experience of incarceration in a visceral way." ―Collector Daily

"To some, he's idealizing people who really are not good people at all ― they're just criminals. But to Danny maybe they're good people who just never had a chance." ―Larry McMurtry, The New York Times

"beautiful, harrowing... a timely reissue" ―Vice

"Conversations with the Dead reminds us that humanity is worth the fight." ―Crave

"a classic of insider reportage... Lyon was a pioneer of what might be called immersive photojournalism... over 40 years after its initial publication, the book retains its raw power and its lingering sense of sadness at lives wasted" ―The Observer

"The resulting images are so vivid that you can practically smell and hear them." ―Bookforum

"The access he had is as fascinating as the photos." ―Mother Jones

"A photo essay that is remarkable for its uniqueness."―Black & White Photography

"Masterpiece."―The Independent

"Lyon’s black-and-white photographs of prisoners are so striking... They capture the experience of incarceration in a visceral way."―PDN

"A surprisingly emotional picture of life inside."―The Daily Telegraph
