This IRIS Nights presentation offers a conversation between Laila Ali and photographer Mikki Willis.
Laila Ali is an undefeated title holder and has been the major draw in women's boxing for years. As a champion athlete, Laila has found a unique value in photography, as the art that has shaped the way people look at female athletes, and specifically women in boxing. Throughout her career she has tried to show that you can be both strong and beautiful as a female athlete. And for Laila, the youngest daughter of Veronica Porsche Anderson and the legendary Muhammad Ali, the action shots of her father in the ring and the confidence and determination in his eyes have been her continual inspiration.
