Robert Lyons
Pictures from the next day
Photographs

April 4 - April 27, 2013
Robert Lyons
Known for his complex and rich photographs of Africa and Egypt, in Pictures from the next day, Robert Lyons has created a series about one man, Walter Niemec. Walter’s unique eccentricities and passions ignited Lyons’ interest. Walter has spent his life in Western Massachusetts in the house where he was born. His only time away was as a Navy Radioman during WWII. Through focusing on Walter’s objects and space, Lyons presents a discourse on aging, life, and the choices within which one exists. This is the first exhibition of Lyons’ work done in the United States, and the images are in a context that is at once more familiar yet also somehow more distant. The passage of time reveals itself as the patina on a life that otherwise appears to never have left the past.

Robert Lyons received his BA in Photography form Hampshire College (Amherst, MA) and his MFA from Yale University. Lyons’ work has been shown internationally for 40 years, including exhibitions at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park (Lincoln, MA), Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, (Kansas City, MO), Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA), and the Seattle Art Museum (Seattle, WA). He is a recipient of the Ford Foundation Fellowship and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. He has published several books, including Who Decides?, Intimate Enemy: Images and Voices of the Rwandan Genocide, Another Africa, and Egyptian Time. Among the permanent collections in which he is included are the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), Seattle Art Museum (Seattle, WA), and Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA).
