About

"Ali at El Morro Castle, San Juan 1976" shows a powerful Muhammad Ali standing in front of El Morro Castle, the 16th citadel designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay. This original photograph was made by David Acevedo, the Puerto Rico journalist who accompanied Muhammad Ali during his stay in Puerto Rico. Following his victory Ali visited the San Juan prison and subsequently financed an exercise facility for the prisoners. Pencil signed "David Acevedo c1976, printed by Morris Lane May 1, 2003" numbered "10/20" and titled "Ali at El Morro Castle, San Juan 1976" on verso. Many of the 1976 photographs made by David Acevedo of Ali's stay in Puerto Rico languished for years in his closet. In 2004 Acevedo collaborated with the photographer Morris Lane and the Phyllis Lucas Gallery to produce a limited edition of 20 prints of "Muhammad Ali in San Juan 1976." Mounted in a 4-ply conservation mat; overall size: 20 1/6 x 16 inches.
