Helmut Newton - Sumo - Keulen, Taschen, 2009 - 480 pp. - Cloth binding with dust jacket - 28 x 38cm

Condition: mint

Multilingual edition: English, French, German.
480 pages full of iconic memories.

Helmut Newton’s portraits have been widely exhibited in shows such as White Women, Sleepless Nights and Big Nudes and compiled into many books. Taschen’s most expensive publication ever created is the special edition Helmut Newton Sumo, a title that truly transcends the coffee table fashion photography book. Other anthologies include Pages From The Glossies, World Without Men, and Polaroids. Newton was born in Berlin in 1920 and escaped Nazi persecution to Singapore and then Australia, where he met his wife the photographer June Newton who works under the pseudonym Alice Springs. Later resettling in Paris, the couple found a home in the fashion capital where some of Newton’s most famous subjects were photographed and his most iconic images created. His photo Le Smoking, perhaps his most well known image, attests to the subversive elegance he conjured: a woman dressed androgynously in Yves Saint Laurent poses with a cigarette in a darkened, cobbled, Parisian street. Simple and powerful, black and white, Helmut Newton’s photography is classic glamour.
