Billy McClune's mug shot and prison report

At the beginning of the semester we read Danny Lyon’s End of the Age of Photography, and in it he wrote about his relationship with Billy McCune, a convict he photographed for the book Conversations with the Dead. The website SoundPortraits.org recently featured Lyon and McCune and published an audio piece on their decades-long relationship that includes never before heard conversations Lyon had with McCune in prison. Along with the recording the site features artwork by McCune as well as some other great links to related information.  Be sure to see McClune’s portrait of Lyon.
