Helmut Newton always demonstrated a healthy disdain for easy or predictable solutions. SUMO—a bold and unprecedented venture—was an irresistible project. A spectacular compendium of images, this super-sized book weighed in at a startling 35.4 kilos, and established new standards for the art monograph genre. It’s no wonder it secured a prominent place in photo-book history. This new edition, revised by June Newton, comes in a more user-friendly format, fulfilling Helmut Newton’s desire for a more democratic distribution that would reach the widest possible audience.
Hardcover with booklet and book stand. 464 pages. Multilingual edition. English/German/French. Revised by June Newton.
