In 1963, Danny Lyon spent time in a poor white area of Chicago called Uptown. Nicknamed ‘hillbilly heaven’, it was a very tough and deprived neighborhood. With a borrowed Rolleiflex camera, he followed the inhabitants of Clifton Street, where he befriended the families who lived there, documenting intimate moments both inside their homes and on the street. The scene of ‘Inside Kathy’s Apartment’ is particularly intimate, not only in the tender moment shared between the seated couple but also because we see various private domestic objects and a third person, sat only inches away and yet completely engrossed in her own activities.
