Helmut Newton

Helmut Newton shows glamour at its most absurd.

A silent witness to the salacious fantasies of society. A professional voyeur. He fossilizes the dance of fashion and pornography in stark monochrome, each image an overdose of desire. Many can’t stand his work, others are evangelical. Whichever side you’re on is almost irrelevant.

Helmut Newton (October 31, 1920 – January 23, 2004) was a German-Australian photographer.
