Helmut Newton

Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most influential and controversial photographers of the 20th century, achieving international fame in the 1970s as a celebrity photographer while working for Vogue magazine. His images were often of a seductive, even gritty nature, and he favoured working in the street over the studio.

The Helmut Newton Foundation presents around 200 photographs donated to its permanent collection by the Berlin artist in 2003. The prints are presented according to the three main genres of Newton's work: portraits, nudes, and fashion. Among the exhibited images are portraits of celebrities Catherine Deneuve, Karl Lagerfeld and David Bowie.

The fashion photographs were commissioned mainly by major magazines in the 1970s and 1980s, while the life-sized Big Nudes series was taken in Paris in 1980.
