Known for his complex and rich photographs of Africa and Egypt\, in Pictures from the next day\, Robert Lyons has created a s eries about one man\, Walter Niemec. Walter’s unique eccentricities and pas sions ignited Lyons’ interest. Walter has spent his life in Western Massach usetts in the house where he was born. His only time away was as a Navy Rad ioman during WWII. Through focusing on Walter’s objects and space\, Lyons p resents a discourse on aging\, life\, and the choices within which one exis ts. This is the first exhibition of Lyons’ work done in the United States\, and the images are in a context that is at once more familiar yet also som ehow more distant. The passage of time reveals itself as the patina on a li fe that otherwise appears to never have left the past.

Robert L yons received his BA in Photography form Hampshire College (Amherst\, MA) a nd his MFA from Yale University. Lyons’ work has been shown internationally for 40 years\, including exhibitions at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park (Lincoln\, MA)\, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art\, (Kansas City\, MO)\, H enry Art Gallery (Seattle\, WA)\, and the Seattle Art Museum (Seattle\, WA) . He is a recipient of the Ford Foundation Fellowship and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. He has published several books\, including Who Decides?\, Intimate Enemy: Images and Voices of the Rwndan Genocide\, Another Africa\, and Egyptian Time. Among the permanent collections in whic h he is included are the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York\, NY)\, Portl and Art Museum (Portland\, OR)\, Seattle Art Museum (Seattle\, WA)\, and He nry Art Gallery (Seattle\, WA).
