Churner and Churner is pleased to announce the gallery’s first exhibition with photographer Danny Lyon. “Deep Sea Diver” presents over 40 gelatin silver prints taken during Lyon’s recent travels in the coal country of Shanxi Province of Northeast China. Shot between 2005 and 2009 and exhibited as a group for the first time, the photos exemplify Lyon’s signature photographer-as-participant approach. The exhibition also includes maquettes for the book Deep Sea Diver (published by Phaidon in 2011), as well as an installation of two memorabilia-covered walls transplanted from the artist’s darkroom in upstate New York. Together, the photos, walls and maquettes reveal an artist’s attempt to make sense of his own history.
