Salt Lake City, UT – In 1963, armed with a seven pound tape recorder and two cameras, Danny Lyon chronicled the notorious motorcycle gang, The Chicago Outlaws. His work became the inspiration for the film, Easy Rider. With the "Bikeriders," Lyon defined a new school of photography, one in which the artist is deeply embedded in the lives of his subjects. KUER'S Jenny Brundin reports on the exhibit at the Kimball Art Gallery.
