About
Helmut Newton

Over the past two decades, Helmut Newton's world of images has acquired a distinctive place in contemporary photography. Helmut Newton, was born in 1920 in Berlin, emigrated to Australia in 1938, and lived for many years in Monte Carlo and Los Angeles until his death in January 2004. He was a photographer and cosmopolitan figure, made famous especially by his fashion and nude photographs, which since 1974 regularly appeared as commissioned work in magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Lui, and Stern.

From fashion photography to portraiture, from nude studies to images from the world of ballet, from the erotic to the topic of death, Newton's work encompasses a truly ample wealth of themes, also embodying facets of the mass-media world of glamour, masquerade and show.
