Daniel Jack Lyons’ background as a social anthropologist is very much at the heart of his practice as a photographer.
His work, whether personal or commissioned, focuses largely on marginalized youth, whether occupying spaces on the periphery of society or in the face of conflict.
The collaborative methods he employs grants these subjects autonomy in guiding each project’s message & infuses Lyon’s work with a deeper spirit that often illuminates universal experiences.
He is a regular contributor to The New York Times, More or Less Magazine & Vogue Italia. His body of work “Hotel Luso” was included in the “New Artists II” exhibition at Red Hook Labs in 2018.
Lyons currently resides in Los Angeles.
