Helmut Newton SUMO 20th Anniversary
Helmut Newton (1920-2004) is widely hailed as one of the most influential photographers of all time. His intent with the creation of SUMO was to design a first-of-its-kind book the size of a personal exhibition. Released in 1999, the monumental volume weighed in just shy of 80 pounds, and went above and beyond anything ever before published, technically and conceptually. Featured in collections around the globe, SUMO is filled with more than 450 astounding images from throughout Newton's career – groundbreaking fashion photography, celebrity portraiture and nudes – reproduced to state-of-the-art specifications. Celebrating 20 years of SUMO and including a new booklet that chronicles the revolutionary publishing venture, this compilation includes everything that made the original so spectacular, but on a smaller scale.
