ABOUT “KOBE” THE NFT COLLECTION OF KOBE BRYANT
The KOBE is a collection of eight digital photographs of never-before-seen first glimpses of the legend, Kobe Bean Bryant. These pictures were clicked during the beginning of his memorable career. Davis Factor, the founder of Smashbox Studio, is the brain behind the camera. At the moment of the shoot, Mr. Factor was sure of this being a monumental shoot, the moment he saw Kobe Bryant walk into the studio. Though the shoot was happening at the beginning of his career, Davis, a magician with a lens, captured his essence, which housed remarkable potential, youth, extra-ordinariness, yet ordinariness about him. As Kobe began to climb the ladder of success in the world of NBA, the lesser he would let people into his private life. Davis was very well aware of that.
Now more than 20 years later after the session, Davis Factor believes that it is time he shared this work of art with the rest of the world, which has been only for his eyes for so long. To share these one-of-a-kind pictures of Kobe Bryant, Davis could not think of a better partner than Cryptograph. Only they would bring these beautiful pictures to the world in a state-of-the-art manner. The collection consists of eight individual unique NFTs which immortalize the late legendary Kobe Bryant. All the revenues raised through the auction will be directed towards the benefit of the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation. Whenever any transaction is done at Cryptograph, the money is instantly credited to its championing cause.
