THE PRINT

Flip Schuke's photographs of boxing legend Muhammad Ali are some of the most impressive images of a sportsman in action ever taken. A series of underwater shots of the boxing legend were taken in a Miami swimming pool in 1961. The 19 year old boxer, then still known as Cassius Clay, was training in the pool when photographer Flip Schulke arrived to discuss the shoot for Sports Illustrated. Ali explained to the photographer that a previous trainer had encouraged him to practice in the pool as the water resistance acts just like weight. On the day of the shoot, Schulke had already taken several photos of the boxer before capturing the best-known shot. "I turned around, and there he was, standing on the bottom of the pool,” he later recalled. “I mean, that's very hard to do, and he's in a perfect boxing pose". It was three years later when Schulke went to photograph the boxer again that he found out he had been fooled by Ali and his trainer.  “We were looking through a scrapbook, and when Ali came across my underwater pictures he winked at me. I realized he had taken me. I learned later he and his trainer had come up with the whole story on their own. He didn’t even know how to swim…. he fooled everybody - and it made fantastic pictures.” This premium quality giclee art print has been produced on luxurious 100% cotton rag textured art paper using archival quality inks resulting in a superior print suitable for museum or gallery display.
