MUHAMMAD ALI, ZURICH, 26.12.1971: ERIC BACHMANN. {Title from spine.} Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 390 pp. with 209 ills. (15 col.) and 34 reference ills. 30 x 21 cm. ISBN 9783905929645 In English.
Publisher's description: Hundreds of close-up, fast-paced photographs of Mohammad Ali taken over a period of ten days before his fight against German heavyweight Jurgen Blin in December 1971, in Zurich, Switzerland, make for a dynamic portrait of the prize fighter. Swiss photographer Eric Bachmann accompanied Ali everywhere -- on a winter jog through Zurich's woods, buying shoes in a working-class neighborhood, going through his training drills and finally to the big fight, which rapidly climaxed in the seventh round with a knock out of Blin. The historical black-and-white photographs are presented full bleed and organized in brisk chronological order against the placid urban backdrop of mid-1970s Zurich. Accompanying the photo essay is a richly illustrated section of the boxing match program pages and newspaper clippings, as well as a photographic index on a variety of individuals who attended the fight.
