Helmut Newton

Helmut Newton remains one of the greatest revolutionaries in the fashion and art world. The German photographer utilized his legendary style of capturing elements of danger and sex in order to capture a story in his photographs. His work at times was flared by violence, at other times his intention was ambiguous, but the constant of sex remained. His models notoriously imposed the word super before them with their Amazonian height and unmistakable blonde hair, accompanied by sky-high stilettos and little else. Helmut Newton’s legacy lives on through his larger-than-life photographs.
