The photographers above, Jeff Widener, is responsible for the Tiananmen Square Tank Man photo in 1989, and Neil Leifer, with his shot of Ali posing over Sonny Liston in 1965.
Behind Photographs is available in two versions: a $60 signed regular edition, and a $100 signed exclusive edition that includes a protective slip case. [Behind Photographs via Wired]
