Photo gallery: Kobe Bryant by Walter Iooss

NBA great Kobe Bryant recently announced he’ll be retiring from pro basketball at the end of his current season with the Los Angeles Lakers. In his honor, we present a gallery of images by sports-photography legend Walter Iooss.

“We have worked together for all of his 19 years,” Walter says of Bryant. “It has been a pleasure, and he was a photographer’s dream. So many good pictures. Adios, amigo.”
