When Benedikt Taschen asked the most important portrait photographer working today, Annie Leibovitz, to collect her pictures in a SUMO-sized book, she was intrigued by the challenge. The project took several years to develop and when it was finally published in 2014, it weighed in at 26 kg (57 pounds). This incredible collection is now available in an accessible XXL book format. Leibovitz drew on more than 40 years of work, starting with the photojournalism she did for Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s through the conceptual portraits she made for Vanity Fair and Vogue. She selected iconic images-such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono entwined in a last embrace-as well as portraits that had rarely, if ever, been seen before. The Annie Leibovitz SUMO covered political and cultural history, from Queen Elizabeth II and Richard Nixon to Laurie Anderson and Lady Gaga. "What I had thought of initially as a simple process of imagining what looked good big, what photographs would work in a large format, became something else," Leibovitz says. "The book is very personal, but the narrative is told through popular culture. It's not arranged chronologically and it's not a retrospective. It's more like a roller coaster." Fans of Leibovitz and her many celebrated subjects can now enjoy that same roller coaster ride for themselves with this unlimited edition.

Recensioner i media

"It's the closest thing to seeing the world through Annie's extraordinary eyes." * Image * "The books are me. It's the opportunity to take the work that I've done with the magazines and distill it and give it its real meaning." * Annie Leibovitz * "You can have talent, but it can go away and you need to feed it. You need to take care of it and you need to find ways to inspire yourself." * Annie Leibovitz * "The book serves as a reminder not only of Leibovitz's undisputed talent, but also of the service she has done for us in documenting so flawlessly the most important moments and people of the past three generations." * Artnet * "A photo album of American culture." * The Independent *

Övrig information

Annie Leibovitz is one of the most influential photographers of our time. She began working as a photojournalist for Rolling Stone in 1970 while she was still a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. By 1983, when she left Rolling Stone for the revived Vanity Fair, she was already closely identified with the conceptual, theatrical style that is her hallmark. In subsequent decades, at Vanity Fair and Vogue and in independent projects, she has worked across many photographic genres and developed a large body of work-portraits of actors, directors, writers, musicians, athletes, and political and business figures, as well as fashion photographs-that expanded her collective portrait of contemporary life. She has published several books and has exhibited widely. She is a Commandeur in the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and has been designated a Living Legend by the U.S. Library of Congress. Steve Martin is an award-winning comedian, actor, writer, producer, and musician. Graydon Carter was the editor of Vanity Fair from 1992 to 2017. Hans Ulrich Obrist is artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries, London. Prior to this, he was the curator of the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Since his first show "World Soup" (The Kitchen Show) in 1991, he has curated more than 300 shows. Paul Roth is the director of the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto.
