16th Photo Auction: June 9th, 2017
Muhammad Ali versus a peace activist – this turned out to be the thrilling match of the 16th WestLicht Photo Auction. In the end boxing legend Ali, captured in 1961 by Flip Schulke under water in a Miami pool, won the day with 26,400 Euros (starting price: 2,600 Euros).
But also Marc Riboud’s iconic image of an anti-Vietnam protester, who in 1967 Washington held out a flower towards the barrels of the soldiers’ guns, rose way above its estimate to an impressive 24,000 Euros (starting price: 2,600 Euros).
