Craig McDean’s Sumo Glamour Shots

September 02, 2011



Craig McDean is one of the most famous fashion photographers in the world, sourcing all kinds of inspiration from all over the map for his many covers of Interview and W magazines. Does this mean we can expect XXL sumo jock straps in some upcoming Vogue Italia spreads? McDean spent a year living with Sumo Wrestlers in Japan, saying "Through a friend I had the uncommon access to the world of the Sumo wrestler. I began to visit the Dohyo every morning around five, the start of the Sumo practice. I entered their world and eventually befriended many of the wrestlers..." A show of McDean's work on the enormous athletes opens next week at Half Gallery in New York.
