Stefan Banz curated the Swiss pavilion at the 2005 Venice Biennale and is the founder and former artistic director of Kunsthalle Luzern. He has also had more than 10 solo shows of his own work in the last five years. His tongue-in-cheek title for this collection of photographs, SMS, refers to sex, mountains, and sunsets, and as that list suggests, it reads like a still love montage--dams coursing, couples kissing, and lots of butts.

The legendary boxing champion Muhammad Ali is at the center of artist Stefan Banz's photographic documentation of a unique project. During the artist's travels between 1999 and 2001, throughout more than a dozen European citites, Banz asked more than 350 people to adopt their favorite Muhammad Ali pose. Even though they were all imitating the same figure, not one of the depictions is alike, revealing much about the character of the individual--man, woman or child. This spontaneous street sparring developed as a new form of portrait photography; shown here are 63 images from the Ali series.
