Danny Lyon was the first photographer to be officially appointed…

Danny Lyon was the first photographer to be officially appointed by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. SNCC was very savvy in their use of photography. They used Lyon’s images in books and posters, disseminating a localized struggle to the nation as a whole. Here, Lyon photographed the brutal, dehumanizing arrest of Clifford Vaughs, another SNCC photographer.
