Nathan Lyons: An Irresistible Passion for Photography

Even though I never had the chance to study with him or attend a workshop, I consider Nathan Lyons to be an important mentor. His writing and imagery struck a chord with this photographer as a young man. “Notations In Passing” has been on my night table for over 38 years.

“Nathan Lyons did not just influence individual people, he affected whole systems of action and thought.”

  1. Keith, thank you for introducing me to Nathan Lyons. I went back to read the article after reading the Desmond Boylan article in LENS. Here is the link https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/18/lens/reconciling-heritage-and-hope-between-chicago-and-mexico.html

  2. Thanks Tim! You should try and find “Notations In Passing” and “Riding First Class On The Titanic”.

    Yes, thanks for this. Though I didn’t know his name, it’s clear my work has felt his influence.
