  2. Danny Lyon, Washington Street, View North From Chambers Street, New York, 1966-67
Lyon’s book “The Destruction of Lower Manhattan" (out of print, sadly) is interesting not just because it does a great job documenting the radical change in the city,  but because Lyon made a change to produce the work. When he realized he wanted to photograph buildings about to be destroyed, he switched from 35mm and Rolleiflex to a large format view camera and began to take architectural photographs, in a style closer to the New Topographics than his previous social documentary work. Lyon could never fall in line with the Bechers or Lewis Baltz of course, and, as the title indicates, his work from Lower Manhattan is tied to the Jane Jacobs era of “Death and Life of Great American Cities” activism.  At the same time Lyon was shooting portraits of other artists (Mark di Suvero), scenes with children (in color!), and construction workers performing the destruction. The Cleveland Museum of Art website has a good selection of these photographs.
