Brings together the work of nine photographers who turned their cameras on the dramatic social transformations unfolding around them in 1960s America: Diane Arbus, Ruth-Marion Baruch, Jerry Berndt, Bruce Davidson, Lee Friedlander, Danny Lyon, Garry Winogrand and Ernest Withers. Building on Robert Frank's The Americans, this new generation of photographers was concerned with revealing a more realistic, sometimes unpleasant and always challenging view of an America undergoing radical change as the civil rights movement and the counterculture got underway. Ranging from the "outlaw culture" of bikers and chain gangs to the rallies of the Black Panthers and the politically charged South, the subject matter of these photographers was unlike anything previously seen in American photography or indeed American history.
