Danny Lyon was famous for his work photographing the civil rights movement in the south and motorcycle gangs in Chicago.
When he returned to New York, his mother told him, if ever got bored, he should “just talk to someone on the subway.”
The result is a photo series he called “Underground: 1966,” which features eight pictures Lyon took candidly of travelers
on the New York City Subway system in Brooklyn during New Year’s Eve in 1966.
