Featured in the Retrospective Exhibition set to tour the United States from 2018, Leaving Kinshasa is the final image in the Rumble in the Jungle collection. This legendary visit by Hunter Thompson and Ralph to Zaire in 1974 to cover the heavyweight boxing match between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman was Gonzo Journalism on fairly epic proportions, even by Hunter's standards. Unbeknownst to Ralph, Hunter had sold their front row, press tickets for a huge bag of weed whcih he then tipped into the hotel pool before diving in himself. Ralph ended up coverig the match from the TV in the hotel room. No wonder they look a bit frazzled as they finally head home!!

It measures 550mm h x 760mm w and features the printer's mark. It is sign in pencil by Ralph is an edition of 250.
