Mike Tyson Photographs by Lori Grinker with an essay by Bruce Silverglade
Lori Grinker is an award-winning documentary photographer and author. Internationally published and exhibited, her work has garnered many awards, including grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Hasselblad Foundation. She is the author of two books that, like all of her work, straddle the intersection between documentary and fine art: The Invisible Thread: A Portrait of Jewish American Women, and Afterwar: Veterans from a World in Conflict. A current Assistant Professor of Journalism + Design at Lang College in The New School's Parsons School of Design, Grinker was previously a lecturer at Yale, the NYU graduate school of journalism, and was on the faculty of the International Center of Photography (ICP). Her photographs are held in the collections of ICP, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Israel Museum, Jerusalem; and San Francisco MoMA (among others). She is represented by ClampArt Gallery in New York and has been a member of Contact Press Images since 1988.
Over the last thirty years, Bruce Silverglade has been busy keeping one of boxing's grandest traditions alive. He is the driving force behind Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn, a boxing treasure since 1937. One of the last of New York City's thriving boxing gyms, Gleason's has been the training headquarters for such legends as Jake LaMotta, Muhammad Ali, and Roberto Duran. In all, 131 World Champions have trained inside the gym's hallowed walls. Currently five active title holders work out at Gleason's as well as numerous contenders and dozens of Golden Gloves champions.
Bruce graduated Gettysburg College in 1968 with a degree in economics. He also holds a master's degree in the Sweet Science. Bruce was inducted into the New York State Hall of Fame in 2015. He lives in New York City.
