An American Photographer’s Legacy

One of the most prolific photographers of American history, Neil Leifer has carved a name for himself memorializing iconic moments in the worlds of sport, politics, and entertainment. After coming out of the same photography house that nurtured legends like Stanley Kubrick, Neil began his professional career at the age of 16. Soon his work would be published in every major magazine across the nation. Across six decades, many of Leifer's techniques helped to evolve sports photography into an artform.


In May 1965, when Muhammad Ali knocked out Sonny Liston in Lewiston (Maine), Leifer's image of the moment (shot in color) quickly became one of the most memorable sports photos of all time – seen by many as the greatest sports photograph in history.

And More

His body of work also includes memorable shots of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, world leaders Fidel Castro and Mikhail Gorbachev and legendary musicians Sir Paul McCartney and David Bowie.
