WALTER IOOSS JR

BASKETBALL ICONS

Over the past 60 years, his photographs have graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, including more than 300 covers. His work has changed the definition of what a “good sports photograph" should be.

THE DROP

For his second NFT drop, Walter chose six stunning photographs that pay tribute to some of the most iconic superstars in basketball.
The “ICONS” in these photographs do not need introductions. Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kevin Garnett are some of Walter's favorite basketball players to photograph. And the photographs of these athletes were shot for the ages.
The pieces were created over a period of 17 years (1993-2010) and embody the unique intimacy, styling, and decisive moments that are the signature of Walter Iooss Jr.s work, standing together as a series or alone in their glory.

Iconically Iooss.

Ten percent of the gross proceeds from the Kobe Bryant auction piece will be donated to The Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating positive impact for underserved athletes and young women in sports. Founded through the vision and loving memory of Kobe and Gianna “Gigi” Bryant.
