we are back at 8:42 with a man whose work you'll recognize instantly. more than 50 years, photographer neil leifer captured iconic
8:43 am
his book "relentless" gives the details behind the shots. i blame you if i look tired. i was up late reading the book. you say you took the pictures but never have gotten to tell the story. was this fun to put together? >> the first book i've ever done, so it was different, with words. i had a wonderful co-writer. it all came together. >> let's look at the pictures. i have to start with the iconic shot, perhaps the most famous photograph in sports photography. this is 1965. tell us how you got the picture. >>ai wherever one uses the word "luck," you found like you're being modest. in sports photography, luck is key. look at the photography between ali's legs. he was my compeoution in "sports illustrated." i got lucky. when you get lucky, don't ss. i didn't>> what's interesting about this, a lot of people initially
8:44 am
ali, standing over him, but that's not what happened, right? >> you have to focus the camera, wait for the strobe lights to recycle. i had no idea what i had. that evening, you don't see the replay on the news at night. probably six months, maybe a year later, i saw a video of it and couldn't believe how quickly it'd happened. >> these are twin kenyan brothers. actually, that's your favorite ali shot, right? >> my favorite. that's my favorite because it wasn't luck. i planned that. you know, i worked on that. i got it exactly the way i dreamed of getting it. it was the only picture i've ever taken in my career that i wouldn't change a thing? >> let's jump ahead to 1984, kenyan twin runners. how did you incorporate the giraffes? >> olympic preview for "time" magazine. i traveled the world photographing athletes in front of the picture post guard of
8:45 am
a greek at the parthenon. an egyptian discus throe wer in front of the pyramids. i wanted the animals with two of the great kenyan distance runners. there is a wrangler in nairobi who sets up movie sets, so the animals appear -- >> giraffe wrangler? >> animal wrangler. he fed the giraffe in that spot for three days. sure enough, they showed up. we had four but two got frightened by a buffalo. i was lucky with those two. >> great picture. this is incredible. a lot of people know you for your sports photographs. you've done so much more over the course of 50 years. fidel castro lighting your cigar. what were the circumstances? >> this was the last picture in the olympic preview i di i appealed o the cubans and said, fidel castro is the picture postcard of cuba.
8:46 am
great boxer with fidel castro, with a cigar holding up their arms. when the cubans agreed, i had a great session. i ask the subject if i can take a picture. i had this idea when i left new york. i looked at castro and said, could i ask a special favor? could i h e a picture of you lighting my cigar? he loved he id. that's how it happened. i don't smoke. the match kept burning his fingers. went through two matches. he was getting a little upset because i couldn't get the cigar lit. >> before we go, i love this picture. jfk and lbj at a ball game in 1961. >> when the washington senators played, it was tradition for the president to throw out the opening pitch on opening day. i went to griffith stadium. he's sitting with lyndon johnson. the president didn't do a thing for seven or eight innings. johnson ate a couple hot dogs. in the seventh or eighth inning, it got cold.
8:47 am
the president put his coat on, and he put a hat on, which caroline kennedy told me years later she never saw a picture of him with a hat on. wore a top hat. there was a foul ball that went in the direction of the presidential box. i like to call it the kennedy administration leaning to the left. >> we've only scratched the surface. this is a remarkable book. the photographs are one thing. they stand on their own. the story bes ies behind them, just as good. neil, thank you so much. >> appreciate it.
