Muhammad Ali is a true inspiration. An activist in his own right, a gifted orator, and a man of principle, his formidable prowess in the ring was just one of his legendary qualities. I was blessed to meet and photograph him thrice in my career, experiences I will always cherish. His passing reminds me to appreciate the legends living among us and strive to be the greatest. Rest in peace.
Here is a post I wrote after photographing him for AARP: Photo Albums, The Alis, and Me. Thank you to Michael Wichita, Oprah, and Lonnie Ali for the incredible assignments.
