Leibovitz Unlimited

40 years of era-defining photography, now in an accessible edition

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.

Annie Leibovitz è considerata una dei migliori autori di ritratti fotografici al mondo.

Le sue immagini sono state esposte in musei e gallerie di tutto il mondo, tra cui la National Portrait Gallery di Washington, D.C., l’International Center of Photography di New York e la Maison Européenne de la Photographie di Parigi. Leibovitz è stata insignita del Living Legend Award da parte della Library of Congress e ha ricevuto molte altre onorificenze, tra cui il Lifetime Achievement Award dell’International Center of Photography.

Amazing book but it's HUGE

eric,20 luglio 2023
An incredible anthology of Leibovitz's work. Really incredible, but the book is so large that it's hard to handle. If you were to get just one book, I might recommend he book "Wonderland". I have both, there's a ton of overlap between they two, but after owning them for months, I prefer Wonderland to this one, mostly because it's far easier to manage. But if super huge books are your thing, get it. It's great.

Like a “fly on the wall”

Gift item to a curated artist of Fine Art Photography. She had the prior 2 books. She loved this gift so much. It is a visual pleasure throughout and presented in a proper heavy hardback book nestled inside a designer hard top sleeve.
