From The Archives: Lyle Owerko

THE GLOBAL PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES PORTRAITS THAT SPAN GENERATIONS AND CULTURES.

CITIPHILE and photographer Lyle Owerko may have made a name for himself by capturing tremendous tragedy on one of America’s most painful days (his 9/11 image of the towers will never be forgotten), but Owerko is a master at celebrating life too. His unique body of portraits– featuring personalities from street dancers to African tribesman to biker babes– spans generations and cultures as the photographer uncovers the true idiosyncratic spirits that walk in today’s world. Each one more exuberant or soulful than the next, Owerko’s portraits demonstrate his innate ability to recognize, understand and celebrate the hearts of genuine individuals. Below, are a handful of our favorites from the renowned photographer.
