THE BOOK

HELMUT NEWTON: SUMO

Sumo was a titanic book in every respect: a 480-page tribute to the 20th century’s most influential, intriguing and controversial photographer, breaking records for weight and dimensions. Fifty people worked with Helmut and June Newton for three years to complete a book that weighed 30kg (66lbs). But size wasn’t everything. Control and quality printing, paper, binding were all critical in making Sumo a worldwide publishing sensation, which is in many famous collections all around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Now, 10 years after the original publication, Sumo is back in a more economical edition, but one with the same DNA as its unique progenitor.

The original Sumo, edited by June Newton, featured over 350 pictures, most published for the first time, covering every aspect of Newton’s outstanding career: from the stunning fashion images that influenced generations of younger photographers, to his powerful, erotic nudes and celebrity portraits. Also included is a booklet with a ‘making of’ section, detailing the meticulous selection process, and the trial and error, experiment and innovation that went into creating the original Sumo, the book that redefined the photographic monograph.

KATE MOSS JOINS THE VOGUE TEAM

Kate Moss is to become a British Vogue magazine contributing fashion editor, with her first story due to feature in a forthcoming spring issue. This marks the first time that the model who has starred on 33 British Vogue covers since her debut for March 1993, as well as numerous shoots inside will be directing the other side of the creative experience. She will be a hands on editor, joining the rest of the Vogue fashion team of stylists and working with her choice of photographers and models.

“I am absolutely delighted that Kate is going to work with us in this new role,” Alexandra Shulman said this morning. “Her undoubtedly brilliant sense of style, depth of fashion knowledge and understanding of what makes a wonderful image will be exciting to see on the pages of British Vogue. I am really looking forward to working with her on ideas.”

“We are absolutely thrilled at Kate’s appointment,” said Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Models, which represents Moss. “This is a natural development in her remarkable career. Bringing her unique sense of style and creative sensibility to Vogue is the perfect fit. She is the definitive Vogue cover girl.”
