Photographic Inspirations

Albert Watson

“My father boxed and he always said the success of a boxer is down to the strength of the neck and the power that’s in it. When I was photographing Tyson I told him that story and then said, ‘Let me take a picture of your neck” – Albert Watson
This image shows boxing in its truest forms, the size of the neck indicates the enormous physical strength of Mike Tyson. The sweat glistening off his body adds to the power of the photograph.
