Dubbed the “KOBE” collection, the series features eight photos taken by the iconic LA photographer and director Davis Factor of Smashbox Studios. The auction started on Tuesday and will go on for three days. Profits from the sale will be donated to the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating positive impact for under-served athletes and young women in sports. Each transaction is automatically donated to the cause of the seller’s choice.
The photo NFTs of Kobe were taken more than 20 years ago, and give fans a glimpse to a different side of the star athlete. Until now, only Davis has laid eyes on these photos, which have captured the essence of Kobe’s youth and everydayness of him before his career took off. Davis has been a creative visionary for many years and has photographed and filmed many of the world’s most recognizable personalities from music, film and fashion.
Kobe and his beloved daughter passed away in a tragic helicopter accident in January 2020, and the collection is a true tribute to the legendary basketball player who helped lead the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA) to five championships.
