6 - 12 December 2021

‘These rare and candid images strip back the celebrity persona to show a thoughtful, focused and determined fighter. Few photographers got as close to the boxer behind the legend.’ British Journal of Photography
‘Simon captures, on the faces of those who met Ali, the dumbstruck awe and joy that he was able to bring forth.’ The New Yorker
’The camp was a special place and somewhere in that mountain air, among the pine trees and the log cabins, Muhammad found peace and sanctuary. He loved that camp, It was the only place he felt he could transform his body and prepare his mind for a fight, except maybe Miami in the original 5th Street Gym.’ Lonnie Ali
