In 1985, Albert Watson shot the iconic pop artist Andy Warhol. Born in Scotland, Albert’s striking images have appeared on the covers of Vogue, Rolling Stone, and Time, and campaigns for Prada, Chanel, and Revlon. The print above is part of an edition of just 25, making it a very rare find.
Are you a Bowie fan? Then look no further than this print from 1973. This photo of Bowie and his sax was shot by Mick Rock, the same guy who shot icons such as Lou Reed, Queen, Iggy Pop, and Blondie. Rock also directed a few of Bowie’s videos, including “Space Oddity” and “Life On Mars?”.
This iconic photo of Tupac was shot in 1991, five years before his tragic death. Once again shot by iconic photographer Albert Watson, this limited edition print can now be yours. Remind you of the poster for the movie Juice? That’s because this too was photographed by Watson.
In 1963, Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) was pictured in a defensive stance at the iconic 5th St. Gym in Miami by Marvin E. Newman, who also shot for Life, Look, and Sports Illustrated. This print is one of only seven, so don’t sleep.
In 1965, Muhammad Ali knocked out Sonny Liston in what was one of the most controversial fights in the sport’s history. Photographer Neil Lefer was in attendance and happened to snap one of the most iconic photographs to exist of Ali — a must have for any fan.
