Whatever narratives we construct from Lyon’s portraits, her tee shirt images all share a sense of intimacy.  She places her subjects against a black background, the light barely distinguishing them from the dark the threatens to envelope them.  It’s as if her subjects have stepped forward to deliver a single message before disappearing into nothingness.  We can only achieve authenticity in isolates moments, Lyons seems to be saying, and photography is the ideal medium to capture it.
