Nathan Lyons (b.1930) has contributed to the field of photography as a critic, author, curator, educator, and photographer. He has published several books and catalogs, including Photographers on Photography (1966), Photography in the 20th Century (1967), Towards a Social Landscape (1967), Persistence of Vision (1968), and Notations in Passing (1974).  His body of work consists primarily of photographs which focus on American culture.

In this interview with Alex Sweetman, Lyons discusses his interest in the concept of "resources," both physical and human. "Those two things are often confused in institutional structures," he notes.

A historical interview originally recorded in 1978 and re-edited in 2007 with support from the Lyn Blumenthal Memorial Fund.
