Danny Lyon's seminal photographs of prison life stand as one of the great post-war works of photojournalism, firmly placing this book among the ranks of Evans'and Agee's Let Us Now Praise Famous Men and Bourke-White's and Caldwell's You Have Seen Their Faces. This was Lyon's fourth book following The Movement, Bikeriders, and The Destruction of Lower Manhattan. "Lyon's photographs must be the most eloquent ever shot in a prison."--Parr and Badger
