This was at the Playstation Theatre on Broadway and featured three Sumo world champions – Yama, who at 600 lbs is the “heaviest Japanese human being ever”, Byamba from Mongolia, and Ramy from Egypt. In total, they share 8 Pro Sumo Champion and World Sumo Champion Titles and 1500 lbs. I was drawn to their unconventional shapes, which are a juxtaposition to the bodies I photograph at Fashion Week. I’m drawn to spectacle and the nostalgia of this ancient Japanese practice, and used their forms as a canvas for color. Byamba and Yama in the ring.
