1997 Action photograph of young Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant skying above the rim against the Indiana Pacers and taken from early in his career. Dark room images of Bryant are extremely rare as his career was spent mostly in the era of the digital camera making ANY original photograph of him almost non-existent. This incredible original work of art was developed in a dark room and was part of the collection of photographer Stephen Green who was gifted this image from a fellow photographer at the time it was taken. This is one of the only career-period photographs of Bryant with the Lakers as he battled with Reggie Miller that we have ever offered and it presents here beautifully for the first time ever fresh out of the Stephen Green collection!
