Man, the 1964 one is such a sharper, more dynamic photo. I don't know if they were trying to copy it or not, but the sumo one looks like such a cheap ripoff.

Not that it isn't totally unfair to even compare them, of course. Kamekura Yusaku is a legendary graphic designer.

Don't forget that the guys on the right are running. Making a composition where it looks like they are running isn't a difficult task.

The rikishi on the other hand have to be assembled from bouts. A more difficult task altogether. One that I think has been done brilliantly.

As you said, it is totally unfair to compare them.
