MIKE TYSON, 1981-1991: LORI GRINKER. PowerHouse Books, Brooklyn, 2017. Distributed by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 100 pp. 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781576877760 In English.
Due date: April 2017. Publisher's description: It all began with an art school photography assignment: Lori Grinker was shooting a project on young boxers under the guidance of the legendary trainer Cus D'Amato. Her main focus became a nine-year-old boxer Billy Hamm. While photographing him, Cus wandered over and asked why Lori was shooting that kid, when the bigger kid in the corner working a speed bag would one day be the heavyweight champion of the world! The kid was a then 13-year-old Mike Tyson.˙Lori's early boxing photographs of Mike Tyson are without peer -- little exists from that era and all of Grinker's work is personal with uniquely privileged access in and out of the ring.˙Over the next decade Lori would photograph the coterie that surrounded Mike; Cus's funeral, going home to Brownsville, old friends, trips abroad, in hotel suites before and after fights, his hook-up with Robin Givens, their wedding, their divorce, and the training and fights in between until Tyson's first defeat--the Buster Douglas fight in 1991. This is a side of the Mike Tyson story rarely seen or shared.
