DANNY LYON »LIKE A THIEF’S DREAM« – selected by STEPHEN PERLOFF

»My nomination for the best contemporary photo book of the year is not even a photography book, per se, though it is illustrated with photographs. Danny Lyon’s “LIKE A THIEF’S DREAM” is the riveting ´story of his relationship with two convicted murderers, James Ray Renton — first encountered when Lyon was doing his work in the Texas prison system, which culminated in his book “Conversations with the Dead” — and Renton’s accomplice, Dinker Cassel, as well as an unflinching portrayal of prison life in the 1980s and 1990s. This book offers extraordinary insights into the mind and methods of one of our leading documentary photographers.«
