Limited edition of Thomas Hoepker’s striking portrait of none other than Muhammad Ali in 1966
“This picture came immediately to my mind when I was asked to consider the theme of ‘Solidarity’. The world right now is on edge in every sense and only by helping and encouraging each other will we get through this incredible global crisis. What picture would possible better represent strength and the determination to fight for equality, unity and justice? As Muhammad Ali said in an interview with Playboy magazine in 1975:
‘I would like to be remembered as a black man who won the heavyweight title and who was humorous and who treated everybody right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him and who helped as many of his people as he could – financially and also in their fight for freedom, justice and equality.’”
The museum-quality prints are accompanied by statements from the photographers and estates, reproduced on archival-quality labels on the reverse of the print. The back of the frame is partially open so that this detail is visible. Size is including black frame.
