Relentless: The Stories Behind the Photographs of Neil Leifer

Neil Leifer with a selection of his magazine covers.

Neil Leifer shared his story with a mesmerized audience at the eleventh Karsh Lecture in Photography on May 20, 2018. Established in 1996, by Yousuf and Estrellita Karsh, the Lecture brings noted photographers to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to share their life’s work and philosophy. Mr. Leifer began his photography career at a young age by finagling his way into baseball games in New York, and although is widely known for his sports photographs (not least of all his work with Muhammad Ali), and groundbreaking techniques, he was highly prolific with other subjects too.
