Happy Birthday, Muhammad Ali: 70 Iconic Images for 70 Years

His beautiful mother Odessa Clay called her son “G-G” for the rest of her life, and years later, Ali would say, “After I won the Golden Gloves, I told Mama that from the very beginning, I was trying to say, ‘Golden Gloves.’ ” So began the life of Muhammad Ali, who celebrates his 70th birthday today.

Though many know him as the greatest boxer of all time, few know that it was actually the theft of his bicycle at age 12 that began his boxing career. After the bike was stolen, Ali ran to the police station, threatening to “whup whoever stole my bike.” Joe Martin, a white Louisville, Ky., policeman, told him he had better learn to fight, and in his spare time, he took Ali under his wing and taught him the ropes.

Ali won his first fight six weeks later. The shot that nearly killed me: War photographers – interactive. Leandrosanchezphotography.

After locating the community, I gained access through one of the sons of the very founder in the 1970s - Enoch is now the leading figure in this community.

Tattooing has always been forbidden in the South African prison system, with severe penalties, but the drive to create these marks is so strong that tattooing equipment will be created somehow.Pigment will come from grinding up rubbish bins, industrial rubber washers, batteries, or bricks. This will then be mixed with saliva, and will be pushed under the skin with nails pulled out of furniture, or sewing needles. Tattoos may convey rankings within the hierarchy of the Number, may be testimonies to a crime committed, or may sometimes be a rather more personal statement: like a message of blame, threat, or regret, or a tribute to a loved one. A “Numbers” gangster can read another’s life story simply through the markings he has. Patrick Joust. Wayne Levin.

Reading this week’s fiction piece, Julian Barnes’s “Homage to Hemingway,” brought back memories of growing up in Miami, where my best friend had a six-toed cat named Tina—short for Ernestina, and purportedly a descendant of one of Hemingway’s Key West cats—and led me to discover a treasure trove of Hemingway photographs at the JFK Library.

Top 100 Images. 10 War Photographs That Changed the World Forever. Popular photography as we know it was presented to the public in the 1840s. It was proposed as the ultimate portrayal of reality and the eternal confinement of history - unlike art or prose, photographs are not easily altered. They have been used to depict the terrors and truths of war, to inform the public of conflicts worldwide and to advertise, subliminally, the importance of national pride and patriotism through the bravery and commitment of young soldiers on the frontlines.

Today war photography has taken a frightening turn; manipulation and alteration are the order of the day and it is often difficult to confirm their authenticity.
