Muhammad Ali

A Rare Glimpse into the Life of the Champ        

Enjoy an exclusive collection of Muhammad Ali photographs by Neil Leifer, Carl Fischer, and Larry Spitzer featuring extraordinarily intimate, intense, and simply stunning moments in history. Curated by Andrew Kaufman. Kaufman suggests that by viewing these photos, you step back in time to an era when Miami Beach was sleepier compared to today’s crowds. These images and Ali’s presence are why Miami Beach is such a cool place. Ali defined the era and put the 5th Street Gym on the map.
