LOS ANGELES, June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- They say every photo tells a story.
The late photographer Howard L. Bingham took over three million photos and most of them never left the protection of his home in South Central Los Angeles.
Bingham was known as Muhammad Ali's best friend and personal photographer. Everywhere Ali went, Howard was at this side. The two friends had great adventures and traveled the world.
With Howard's passing, his son Dustin Bingham, the Executor of the Howard L. Bingham Photographic Trust, along with sports agent Harlan Werner, have uncovered rare photographs and film footage in the archive Howard created during his long career.
The Howard L. Bingham Photographic Trust, Dustin Bingham and Harlan Werner have entered into an agreement with journalist and human rights activist Riccardo Romani along with his friend and partner, the iconic film Director Alfonso Cuarón, under the umbrella of Robusto Films to produce and develop projects around Bingham's photos and recordings.
"Howard's camera documented many of pop culture's greatest subjects, along with many of the most important social issues and events in the past 50 years," said Romani. "I feel the urgency to tell his very current story, it will give the people the opportunity to look at his history in a new way. Bingham protected his friends like Muhammad Ali, the same way he protected his images. Howard was everywhere, he knew everyone, yet he was a very genuine person with a smile that always lit up the room.
"We are excited about the partnership with Riccardo, Alfonso and Robusto Films," said Dustin Bingham. "It's exciting seeing this new work that my father had tucked away all these years. He was truly a special person and we look forward to what Riccardo and Alfonso will bring to this partnership."
"Howard L. Bingham was truly an icon in the world of photography," said Werner. "The relationships and people he touched all over the world are truly evident in the new work we have uncovered."
