Mike Tyson, Catskills, New York, 1986

Albert Watson's is well-known for his portraits of celebrities, often transforming the already larger-than-life personalities into deities through his lens. With this image, Watson managed the impressive feat of making a portrait of the back of someone's head (albeit a very famous head) into an icon. The beads of sweat on Mike Tyson's impressive neck echo his athleticism and brute strength he displayed in the boxing ring.
