Helmut Newton - Sumo - Taschen, 1999 - 480 pages - hardcover - 50 x 70 cm - 30 kg.
Condition: very good condition

“Sumo” by Helmut Newton with the Philippe Starck stand, which was especially designed for this book. The work has 480 pages with shots by Helmut Newton and it weighs 30 kg. The copies of the limited original edition have been hand-signed by the artist. Purchased when published (published in 1999, edition 10,000 pieces, sold out).

SUMO is a titanic work in every aspect: a 480 page homage to one of the most influential and controversial photographers of the 20th century, a book breaking various records and dimensions in terms of size, weight and the resale price.

“The photographer Helmut Newton attracted attention 10 years ago with a truly significant project.. Newton’s book is probably the most spectacular and expensive photo book project of all times.”, Hamburg

“A crazy idea, a good investment: even today collector’s pay up to 19,000 Dollars for one of the 10,000 copies...and tomorrow?” BZ, Berlin
