Michael Brennan’s Muhammad Ali.

Ali 1977

On Thursday evening, DWR Beverly Blvd Studio in conjunction with Artworks Gallery Pasadena, showcased the black and white photography of subject Muhammad Ali by National Portrait Gallery artist Michael Brennan. “The original image [“1977”] resulted from a unique intimacy between Michael Brennan, and Ali, who wanted to be helpful to the young photographer."
