Helmut Newton

Germany, 1920 - USA, 2004

Helmut Newton began photographing nudes in the 1970s, both independently and incorporated into his fashion photography, and worked in this genre until the end of his life in 2004. His series 'Naked and Dressed', which marks the transition from fashion to nudes in his work, and his 'Big Nudes” made him world-famous and inspired countless photographers and other visual artists to imitate or re-interpret them. 


Newton created an incomparable body of work, full of subtle seduction and timeless elegance, especially in the nude genre. He depicts naked bodies populating swimming pools, ingenious shots of undressed mannequins and other fashion-focused nudes, half-clothed models wearing orthopedic prostheses, and provocative stagings of sexual obsession by a female cast – which open up a realm of associations where our imagination can wander.
